Racetrack Going Once, Going Twice...

New, 4 comments

Horse racing's just not what it used to be, and the owner of Golden Gate Fields in Albany wants to unload the track in an early 2010 auction. Prospective buyers include gambling companies that would presumably keep the track, but also developers like L.A.'s Rick Caruso, who would have dropped a $300 million mall and apartment project on the site had he not been tarred and feathered by residents for trying back in 2006. (He's now planning a similar development at L.A. County's Santa Anita racetrack.) [SFBT]
