The New York Racing Association Board of Trustees approved having video lottery terminals at Belmont and Aqueduct.

The plan has to be approved by both the State Legislature and Gov. George Pataki to take effect.

NYRA omitted Saratoga Race Course from the proposal, citing that the tradition and character of the site would be altered. The Saratoga Chamber of Commerce was opposed to the addition of slots.
