Ebeko Euthanized on Second Day of Racing Season at Santa Anita. Any closure at Aqueduct, which is equipped for the cold winter months, would have required millions of dollars in renovations at Belmont, a summer-only track.
Belmont is also hampered by its north-oriented grandstand, which would cause shadows in the winter months. Belmont is one of few racecourses in the United States Santa Anita Park and Thistledown Racecourse being the others to be north-oriented.
All others are oriented either east or rarely west. This was averted when a deal was reached with NYRA and New York State.

In , the State issued a request for proposals to operate the video lottery terminals at Aqueduct. The proposal was in conjunction with Marian Ilitch , a co-owner of the Detroit Red Wings.
The proposal according to most sources was dead on arrival since, even if the Shinnecocks received official Bureau of Indian Affairs recognition as a tribe, the Aqueduct Casino would still have to be approved by the New York State Legislature and the Bureau of Indian Affairs; and Aqueduct would have to first be taken into trust by the Department of Interior, as the Shinnecocks historically had not owned property in Queens.
In July , seven companies submitted bids to develop a racino at Aqueduct: Aqueduct Entertainment Group, Delaware North , MGM Mirage , Mohegan Sun , Penn National Gaming , SL Green Realty , and Wynn Resorts.
Some developers indicated that a portion of the slot machines could open as early as April However, the selection of an operator for the casino was delayed for several months because State officials frequently changed the rules and could not reach an agreement on the winning bidder, prompting Wynn to pull out of the running in November.

I'm more into harness racing and prefer the Meadowlands. Date of experience: October Great Racetrack. I've always been a fan of horse racing.
This is one of the old racetracks of this region. The seating in the stands is great. Just like Yonkers, you are in the front of the action. Date of experience: May BlueGold75 wrote a review Mar Northampton, Massachusetts 37 contributions 16 helpful votes.
Saratoga It Isn't. I'm a horse racing fan and despite the fact I live a few hours from "The Big A", I never made it there until today.
For a casual fan, it very likely would do nothing to turn them on to horse racing or keep them there for very long.
For someone who is a horse racing fan, or enjoys a day at the races, they might be able to put up with it for an afternoon.
The racing part of the facility has three floors. The first floor has pidgeons flying around it, and signs not to feed them. Did I mention this is a completely enclosed building in the middle of winter?
As you get closer to the doors leading to the race track, the smell of weed was pretty evident.
I saw one person going through a garbage can looking for possible winning tickets that might have been thrown away by mistake, usually a no-no at most tracks.
I saw people drinking out of paper bags more than once. If you don't feel like braving the cold to watch the horses being saddled, you can watch through some rather grimy, dirty windows overlooking the paddock.

The Rockaway Line was opened on August 26, by the New York, Woodhaven and Rockaway Railroad and would later be operated by the Long Island Rail Road LIRR as its Rockaway Beach Branch.
After a fire on May 8, cut service, the bankrupt LIRR sought to sell or abandon the line altogether. In , the New York Racing Association NYRA chose to upgrade Aqueduct Racetrack in South Ozone Park in part because of its proximity to the Rockaway Beach Branch.
As part of the modernization of the racetrack, the Racing Association built a station with ramps leading directly to the track and facilities that could handle racetrack crowds.
Once the work was finished, it was handed over to the city. The Aqueduct Racetrack station opened on September 14, , on the same date as the renovated Aqueduct Racetrack.
On the start of service in September , extra-fare "Aqueduct Special" trains ran nonstop from the lower level of the 42nd Street—Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan until it crossed over to the northbound platform to discharge passengers at the racetrack.
Aboard the train were members of the National Association of State Racing Commissioners. That station's now-closed outer platforms were used to segregate passengers using the special service.
Increased service was provided during the spring meeting with Saturday and holiday service. During its first year, the service carried , riders.
Larger tokens were used. The NYRA last made these payments for the racing season. Beginning on April 15, , during racing season one train ran from 57th Street on the IND Sixth Avenue Line to Aqueduct Racetrack, leaving 57th Street at 11 A.

The renovation added new staircases to street level, an enclosed passageway between the station and casino, and an elevator from the street to platform level to make the station ADA-accessible.
The station also began being open 24 hours a day. Located on an embankment, the station has four tracks with only the outer two used in revenue service.
The two center express tracks have been disconnected from the line and permanently removed. This section of track can be used for revenue service or work train layups, but this use has been made completely redundant because of the nearby Pitkin Yard serving as the primary layup yard instead.
North of the station, the line's northbound track switches to the position of the former southbound express track to head onto the Liberty Avenue elevated structure.
The station is the only through stop in the New York City Subway to serve trains in a single direction. In the past, southbound trains have terminated at this station using a crossover located to the north of the station.
