EXPANDING THE EMPIRE: In New York, Lauren Mineau reported CDI and Saratoga Harness Racing Inc. have "come to an agreement outlining the near finalization of a five-year deal in which CDI will take over management of Saratoga Casino & Raceway and purchase a 25-percent stake" in Saratoga Harness Racing. The deal was "not struck due to any financial woes at either establishment, but instead to finalize an ongoing partnership." Saratoga Casino & Raceway Senior VP/ Marketing & External Affairs Rita Cox said, "This stems from a relationship we've had with them for quite some time. We already work together and share a lot of the same core values." Saratoga Casino & Raceway said that it "does not expect any major management overhauls or changes as of right now" (THE SARATOGIAN, 7/31).
