NYRA Spends Nearly $2M To Improve Technology, Seating At Saratoga Race Course
Published July 17, 2014
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY: DAILY RACING FORM's David Grening noted NYRA hopes to "emphasize quality over quantity at the 40-day Saratoga meet" that begins tomorrow, with plans to "run approximately 15 to 20 fewer races than the 420 conducted" in '13. NYRA Senior VP/Racing Operations Martin Panza said that he wants to "write fewer cheaper races if possible." While there will be "less flat racing, there will be more steeplechase racing at this year’s meet -- 12 races compared to nine in previous years" (DRF.com, 7/16).
