On Saturday June 15th, The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA), will host its first ever Public Hearing in the west wing of the Belmont Room (2nd floor of the Clubhouse) at Belmont Park from 9:30-11:00 a.m. Members of NYRA Senior Management will be among those in attendance.
The session will provide the public an opportunity to discuss topics of interest in an “open forum” setting. Based on responses to fan surveys, the primary areas of focus during the event will be racing, wagering and marketing. The town hall-style meeting will start with a brief introduction and continue with a recap of recent NYRA events, followed by a moderated, question-and-answer discussion with the panel.
Fans wishing to attend must RSVP here as space is limited. An agenda will be presented and posted at nyra.com in advance of the session.
“It’s essential that we listen to the thoughts and concerns of our fans, and the best way to do that is to give them a chance to weigh in directly on topics of broad interest and importance,” said Eric Wing, Director of Communications & Media Relations for NYRA. “June 15th will be the first of many such opportunities going forward. We look forward to an open and frank discussion next week.”
