The New York Racing Association has struck a tentative deal with horsemen on a revenue-sharing arrangement for future proceeds from video lottery terminals at Aqueduct Racetrack.
Robert F. Flynn has been named to the Board of Trustees of the New York Racing Association. The appointment is subject to the approval of the New York State Racing and Wagering Board.
The New York Racing Association announced Sept. 3 that it has fully funded the account maintained for the benefit of its horsemen, who are represented by the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association (NYTHA), using the proceeds from recently completed business transactions.
The New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association has donated $37,000 to the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. The New York THA, which represents horsemen at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga, donated money to the foundation last year as well.
