But in the deep stretch his stride shortened and I had to get after him a bit and he responded and hung-on for a head victory," Miller said referring to the mile that Jacks To Open went today.

WOODBURY, N.Y. — The state Legislature has approved the creation of a video gambling hall in this Orange County town. The legislation allows Empire Resorts, which operates the Resorts World Catskills casino and Monticello Raceway in Sullivan County, to use the VLT (video lottery terminal) license that it held for the Monticello site at the new location.  Empire discontinued video gambling at Monticello earlier this year. The new operation, expected to have more than 1,100 VLTs and employ about 400 people, is to be at the site of the long-closed Nepera Chemical plant in Woodbury, which has been reduced to rubble and is contaminated. Empire Resorts will be responsible for cleaning up the site and will get no tax breaks, according to state Sen. James Skoufis, D-Woodbury. New York state will kick in $1.2 million of offset the cost of municipal services associated with the project. The legislation allowing the VLT parlor commits Empire Resorts, which has Gov. Andrew Cuomo's support, to preserve at least 1,473 full-time jobs at Resorts World casino. Empire has suffered steep financial losses since opening the casino in early 2018, and it recently got permission from the state to reduce the number of gaming tables there. The legislation also mandates the “long-term operation of harness racing in Monticello." The video gambling operation still must go through the approval process at the local level.

Monticello, NY--- The field may have been small but still there was plenty of action when Matt Zuccarello moved Broadway Bruiser at the half and they rallied to a 1:59.4 harness racing victory in the NAADA Trot at Monticello Raceway on Thursday afternoon, June 20. For Zuccarello it was a bittersweet victory since his triumph came on the birthday of his father-in-law who passed away last year. "It's always gratifying to win a race but when it happens on a memorable day its doubling rewarding", Zuccarello said in the winner circle after his victory. Zuccarello, an avid amateur driver who doubles as the publicist for the GSY Amateur Series, looked like a veteran reinsmen and made all the right moves en route to his triumph. When the gate sprung Joe Faraldo sent Tough Get Going in search of the lead from the five hole but Alan Schwartz, up behind Ladys Big Stormont from the pole position, had other plans. He forced Faraldo to take a seat behind him as he led the field by the first stanza in :29.2. Schwartz kept the pedal to the metal and was in complete control as Ladys Big Stormont tripped the halfway timer in :59.3. Meanwhile Zuccarello and his trotter were sitting third behind the leaders but when they headed up the backside Zuccarello moved Broadway Bruiser out to challenge. " I got away slowly and stayed close to the leaders and then ranged alongside Ladys Big Stormont as we raced head-to-head past three quarters and around the final turn. But once we straightened for home my horse began to slowly pull away and we went on to win it by a length and a half," Zuccarello explained. Schwartz's trotter held on for second money while Faraldo's Tough Get Going flattened out in the lane and had to settle for the show dough. The winner, a 4-year-old Muscle Mass gelding, is owned by Harmon Racing Stable and trained by Patti Harmon He paid $9.90 for win. For Zuccarello , a mobile salesman by trade, it was his first win this season from a limited amount of starts.   by John Manzi for NAADA

ALBANY – An effort to move the gambling operations that shuttered in April at Monticello Raceway to a new betting facility in Woodbury, Orange County, is picking up key support in the state Legislature with just days to go before the legislative session ends. A bill introduced this week would allow the casino owners of Resorts World Catskills to open a new video-lottery facility near the Woodbury Common outlet center. The proposal was quietly floated earlier this year by Empire Resorts, which owns the struggling Sullivan County casino, after it shuttered the gaming operations at Monticello Raceway and combined it with Resorts World. Now the idea has picked up support from the local delegation in the state Senate and from Assembly Racing Committee chairman Gary Pretlow, D-Mount Vernon, who said earlier this year that Empire Resorts approached him with the plan. "It does mean a lot to them to preserving jobs at one site, increasing jobs at another and in turn increasing revenue and education funding," said Senate Racing Committee chairman Joseph Addabbo, D-Queens. "If we have that opportunity, I think we should take it." What could happen in Orange County? The Casino at Monticello Raceway is closing The bill states the new gambling hall would "maintain the state video lottery gaming revenue previously coming from video lottery gaming operations Monticello racetrack by authorizing a video lottery gaming facility to be operated in Orange County by the owner of Monticello racetrack." The bill would also require it to be at least 30 miles from Empire City Casino and Raceway in Yonkers and also provide payments to Yonkers Raceway because of its relative proximity to the Westchester County track. The bill would seem to address many concerns in the region about the future of horse racing and Resorts World Catskills, which has struggled to meet revenue projections. Resorts World closed its VLT parlor at Monticello Raceway in April, but has kept open the harness track at Monticello Raceway. Without the VLT revenue, Pretlow and local horsemen have expressed worry that Resorts World might ultimately try to close the track. The casino said it doesn't plan to close the track. Why is this being considered? A new VLT parlor near Woodbury Common, the popular destination, could be a boon for Resorts World and Monticello Raceway, which would share in the profits from the new facility — as would the state. The bill notes the track and casino are Sullivan County's largest employer with more than 1,600 employees. "To provide sustainability to the business, Empire Resorts seeks statutory authorization to relocate its current VLT allocation to a location with a more stable revenue base," the bill states. It added that if the bill becomes law, "this will provide the state with incremental video lottery gaming revenue and enhanced racing support payments and long-term continuation of harness racing at Monticello racetrack." It is unclear whether the bill has the support within the Legislature to get approved before session is set to end Wednesday. By Joseph Spector Reprinted with permission of Poughkeepsie Journal

Monticello, NY-- When Tony Verruso is not airborne assisting travelers he enjoys time sitting behind a spirited steed in an amateur race. And on Thursday afternoon (June 6) Verruso, the president of the CKG Billings Harness Driving Series, drove Connie Keeper to a 2:00.1 victory in the NAADA Trotting Series which began its summer harnes racing events today at Monticello Raceway. When the starter said "go" Joe Faraldo gunned Tough Get Going to the led but he was chased by Someway Same Hall (Tony Ciuffetelli, Jr.) and Connie Keeper, eventually yielding to the latter who got first call as the field passed the quarter pole. "They were all leaving pretty good and I figured I'dgo out and look for a hole after the start but it wasn't until Joe (Faraldo) grabbed leather and Tony Ciuffetelli, (Jr.) found a hole with the favorite (Someway Same Hall ) that I cleared to the lead and after that happened I had constant pressure and just kept going," Verruso said. After a :29 first panel Verruso kept the pedal to the metal and Connie Keeper showed the way past the half in :59.2 being challenged now by Joe Lee with Surface Tension, who hung around up the backside before he began to fade when Connie Keeper passed the third stanza in 1:29.4.. At that point Faraldo moved to the outside with Tough Get Going as Ciuffetelli hung along the pylons in third place with thoughts of using the passing lane in the stretch... which he did. But the race for victory was between the top two trotters and both Faraldo and Verruso went to work urging their charges in the deep stretch. "When we rounded the final turn I thought I was home free but after a tough trip on the engine Connie Keeper's strides began to shorten as we approached the finish line. However, the finish wire came up in time and we won it by a head," Verruso said in the paddock as he handed the lines to the horses' caretaker." Sent off at odds of over 6-1 Connie Keeper paid $14.20. With her victory the veteran Muscles Yankee mare raised her lifetime earnings to over $201,000. She is owned by Dr. Scott Woogen and trained by Gary Messenger. For Verruso, it marked his 73rd career win since he began competing in amateur racing in 1999.   by John Manzi for the North American Amateur Driving Association
