Saratoga Casino

DRAFT- Needs Revision (Facts)

To The Editor:

  This year for the Breeder's Cup I went to the Saratoga Casino in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. this showed me what in New Hampshire could be better.

  The Saratoga Casino is just south of the famous Saratoga Racetrack which opened in 1836. It's actually the harness track, which by 2003 like the rest of the horse racing industry had fallen on hard times. In 2011 the New York General Assembly passed legislation allowing 1700 video lottery terminals to be installed and what a showpiece the Saratoga Casino now is. It's like the main lobby of the Mount Washington Hotel with a gaming floor.

  The Saratoga Casino now injects $53 million dollars into state and local treasuries. This could be done in New Hampshire.
