Seeking to avoid a "profound" impact on the state's racing industry, New York City Off-Track Betting Corp. will not shut down April 18 as planned.
The nation's largest off-track betting corporation will be shut down on the night of April 11 if a deal to provide it with financial help does not come together over the weekend, officials warn.
New York City Off-Track Betting Corp., facing a possible shutdown, can continue its bankruptcy reorganization case, a federal judge ruled March 22.
With talks to avoid a shut-down of its operations so far stalled, NYCOTB has floated a plan to state officials to permit it to withhold certain payments to tracks and others to remain solvent the next three months
The nation's largest off-track betting corporation, now under federal bankruptcy protection, faces closure in the next 60 days unless the state officials OK its recovery plan.
