We may be seeing the end of Aqueduct in a few years:

"It's a pretty logical end game when you have two facilities eight to 10 miles apart, and one is winterized and the main one is not," he said. "Belmont Park is very large, and there's plenty of room to adjust the scope of the building. The end game is one track. Initially, I wasn't sure of that, but after looking at the overhead of having two facilities, it makes sense. The scale of Belmont allows you to do so many things, so I think for downstate racing, we need one plant and it's Belmont.

It would be sad but it does make sense. Belmont is updating and adding Barns and there is more room there.
