I assume you have also announced the death of all other TB and SB tracks.

Interesting that with multiple scratches and off the turf the corpse of AP still took in over 2m in handle.

Sounds to me like Lang takes two lines about Labor UNions out of the bill and tries again Thursday or Friday

It looks like Arlington killed us all. Who is the "they" besides the track itself?

this is not dead yet....someone needs to corral Lang. If it was up to him we'd have slots in every urinal in the state. Relegate slots to the tracks and be done with it!

There is no way a simple slots-at-the-track bill would pass.

Good luck with that.  Arlington is the only track that advertises and they're dying.

Was Lang born in Vegas?  Actually have had decent lick with slots at McCarren. Could have slots right as you get off blue line.. would make the TSA Nazis late for work

The GREED of Arlington Park management will kill the industry.  With slots there is tons of money to be made by both the operators and the horsemen.  Without the slots it would seem to me that Arlington Park has committed industry suicide.  Wake up Arlington and share the wealth!  Live and Let Live!

Greed?..................show us your proof of "greed." I call AP good business people for trying not to get screwed by a shoddy labor provision.

I think the labor problem for Arlington has been solved as that part of the bill has been removed.  So it is back to the committee and whatever happens there in the final hour chaos.

I think that the Labor issue has been resolved per APCD Dan.  If so, Arlington will still be required to bargin in good faith per NLRB.  As far as Labor Unions screwing a corporation with Arlington's resourses, an arbritator could resolve the issue in a heartbeat.  Pleaseeeeeeee

YOU are right, Klink.....QUINN won't sign it for just the reasons I sighted when I complained about expansion to airports, etc.......dummass Lang asked for way too much and you can BET the compromise will be 5 more land-based casinos and nothing for the tracks.

I disagree, cubfan.  I don't think any expansion would pass without us on board. I think we are strong enough to kill something like that.
