I'm thinking I'm going to need to be sure to get back east next spring for a last chance to experience the "old" Belmont.

I wonder whether there are any business reasons for this along with the reconstruction of the courses. Is it cheaper to operate at Aqueduct (smaller facility)?

We lose money running that meet at Aqueduct as opposed to Belmont. A simple look at the handle numbers makes that clear.

Then why the switch back to Aqu for the fall meet?
Presumably, the track will be fit for racing in the spring, or is it the need for Belmont to host the Belmont Stks?

The article notes the "reconstruction" of the racing surfaces. This will be more than just a "resurfacing" of a main track and/or repairs/overseeding of a turf course. And as we've seen lately - the reconstruction of a turf course requires TIME before it's usable.

Thanks - I haven't had time to read the article yet
