"There's no truth in that," Murphy said. "Our 'Turf Festival' is working out very well. This 10-day meeting works for us. Our fields are full and our simulcast signal is being well-received. When you start stretching it out too far, you also start stretching out the purse money."I seriously doubt you'll see a longer meet in our future. Besides, our turf course can't take more than 10 days of racing."Atlantic City, which distributed about $150,000 in purses per day, did not share in the $11.7 million allocated by lawmakers to boost purses in the state. That money went to two state-owned venues -- Monmouth
Park and Meadowlands. Atlantic City's purse money is generated by year-round simulcasting.
