the foundation is really a big deal for cancer research and immunology, so would guess there is a bigggger kickback there for the family

and he is a billionaire, still living at 99yrs

and he was already linked to CDI before selling it to them

I knew he was still living, but I find it hard to believe he knows(understands)now how CDI handles their customer service since he was very much like Keeneland in how he took care of his customers. I also think the Chair or CEO changed after CDI first bought it and he wouldn’t have been involved in any changes by then.

yes.......think his kids and others  handle his $$ and his (their name is on the Foundation)

He also bred horses, but I did not know that. or forgot.......think his family talked him into selling to CDI

I wasn’t aware he owned Hill N Dale in Illinois, no wonder they never wanted to allow visitors.

But I think the original partner with Hill N Dale broke off and set up the one in Kentucky which has bloomed in moving to Xalapa, although the first Kentucky one was beautiful but I can’t wait to visit this new one!

There is so much in this article that I would never have thought of on my own. Your content gives readers things to think about in an interesting way.

His son is blaming politicians, why didn’t they sell their other casino, put one in at Arlington?

Saw the article and did not read.  I blame CDI for this.

good article, and didn't know about  his WWII days, but lucky throughout his life, except now,as think this will be added to his legacy, the fall of Arlington Park
