  1. Finger Lakes is the last stop for crippled, lame, and mentally abused racehorses.
    The last stop before the dumping begins which is usually the kill auction, and subsequently the slaughterhouse.
    This hell hole MUST shut down NOW.
    The only hope of getting it to shut down is when the Native American casino opens up just down the street because it will take away about 70% of their casinos profits which they need in order to keep going.
    This industry hasn’t been sustainable for a very long time.
    They rely on everybody else to financially support them while they live off the avails of the slaves (racehorses).
    Finger Lakes has DEMANDED from Gov. Cuomo to compensate them, in the MILLIONS, for their predicted loss revenue.
    True to style, they feel entitled to casino money profits which could otherwise go to much needed social causes or infrastructure.
    All signs point to NO compensation, and the track will close down – thank goodness.
    I’m just waiting for the morning that I can wake-up and see that hell hole shut down.
