The New York Racing Association can give free track passes to relatives of owners, trainers and jockeys, under legislation that has been given final approval by the state Legislature.

New York State Sen. William J. Larkin Jr., who played a key role in the passage of legislation mandating the expansion of gaming in New York, will present the keynote address at next month's New York Gaming Summit.
