Aqueduct Racino deal is officially dead in New York

We're pretty sure you could just pull the plug on any casino project if you call it a racino. Racino? We get it but do we have to? Just call it a casino at a former race track or a race track with a casino please.
"The Division of the Lottery has concluded that it cannot issue a gaming license to Aqueduct Entertainment Group," Gov. Paterson's administration said in a statement.
"Therefore, the state has officially withdrawn its support for AEG to develop and operate a video lottery" slots parlor at the racetrack.
