At the time, equine therapy was beginning to gain a real foothold in the aftercare community. But fortified by demonstrated success stories and several comprehensive studies that document the benefits of equine therapy for people with mental health issues, the field has gained a lot of adherents in the wellness field. Last year, the State of University of New York [SUNY] Cobleskill even added a Therapeutic Horsemanship program.
While there were some questions raised about whether NYRA should have been compensated for any of its rights to the properties, everyone understood that the legislature had limited NYRA to a life estate to the racetrack properties in return for NYRA receiving an extension of the racing franchise until the year 2000. If NYRA were to go out of existence or lose its franchise, the racetrack properties would belong to the State. As Arthur Kremer, the chairman of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee, proclaimed in the Assembly debate on the 1983 legislation, In the year 2000, when the charter of the Racing Association and the franchise expires, all of the tracks presently used by NYRA and covered by their franchise will be turned over to the people of the State of New York for the people of the State of New York to own as their property.
Despite what people may believe in the 21st century, in 1983: (1) Everyone involved in New York racing, including the media, knew that the legislation made the State the owner of the racetrack properties, and (2) NYRA fully consented to the arrangement under which NYRA racetrack properties became the property of the State.

The National Youth Rights Association (NYRA) is a youth-led Civil and political rights led by Margin Zheng & Ashawn Dabney-Small President & Vice-President of NYRA organization in the United States promoting youth rights, with approximately 10,000 members. NYRA promotes the lessening or removing of various legal restrictions that are imposed on young people but not adults, for example, the drinking age, voting age, and the imposition of youth curfew laws.
"It's a huge benefit to people who stay with us all year. If their horse gets five starts by the end of the summer, then all fall and winter they are running for increased purse money," said Martin Panza, NYRA's senior vice president of racing operations. "If we just raised purses $1,000 a race, it wouldn't help because we know 15% of the trainers earn 85% of the money. This is designed so any trainer can benefit. If you run your horses here, you will benefit, and maybe this will get people thinking twice before they ship out-of-state to run. If you are a trainer, now you are just penalizing yourself and your owner by doing that."
"I commend NYRA and Martin Panza in particular for thinking creatively to create real incentive programs that get people to run at NYRA tracks. That's what we all want, whether you are a horseman, or a member of NYRA management," said owner Joe Appelbaum, president of the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association. "Anyone interested in New York racing wants to see more racing, bigger fields, and bigger handle because of the bigger fields. I think it's great to see NYRA think creatively and try new things, especially those with the direct benefit of getting horses to run more often and increasing field size."
"I agree that they should reward people who race in New York all year," he said. "It is important from a loyalty standpoint, and to keep our races filled all year. Everybody loves Saratoga, but no one wants to see four-horse fields there, and there are plenty of claiming races and New York-bred races at Saratoga. If we don't give those outfits with claimers and state-breds a chance to earn significant purse money, it's foolish to think they'll be around in the summer to run their horses. I think Martin is right on to reward these horsemen."
"It's a competitive world, and whenever money is at stake, there's all sort of incentives for people to play with the margins, but Martin has put in some good safeguards. It's a creative program and a thoughtful one on the horse welfare end, too. I'm sure we'll all keep an eye on it to make sure no one abuses the rules," Appelbaum said. "Hopefully, no one kills the golden goose."
"After (Duncker) presented us with the idea, we ran about three years of stats to see what it cost. It will be in the millions, but the more and more we looked at it, the more it made sense. You should reward the people who stay with you. If you want to run out of town, fine. Next year, we might tweak it so that if you run out of town, you lose a start, but we'll run it for a calendar year and see what happens. The purses at Aqueduct are already better than virtually anyone else, and this will only make racing here all year even more attractive."

Those who choose to picnic in the unreserved backyard grounds of the track can bring their own chairs or even a pop-up tent, and sit wherever they wish. Those who are hoping to get a picnic table can participate in the 7:00 AM rush when the track opens for breakfast, where many people claim their picnic table for later by putting a cooler or tablecloth on it. After you've "reserved" your spot, you can leave until just before the gates open for paid admission.
Additionally, reserved tables are available in the Miller Time Fourstardave Sports Bar in the lower Carousel. These can accommodate two, four, and six people. Personal coolers and outside food and beverage are not permitted in the Miller Time Fourstardave Sports Bar.
