The longtime head of a quasi-state agency charged with financing improvements at New York's top Thoroughbred racetracks has resigned under a cloud, government officials said Oct. 9.
Federal prosecutors are preparing an indictment against the New York Racing Association that will allege a corporate conspiracy that permitted corruption to occur at its three racetracks. Sources also say the state is currently developing a contingency plan in case the NYRA is ousted from its duties.
Several high-profile racing bills suffered quick deaths as the New York legislature ended its 2000 session.
