Genting Group's ambitions for a full-scale casino may have hit a roadblock, but that doesn't mean that New York State should allow full-scale casinos elsewhere, according to Genting Group.(2)
As it turns out, Phillip Goldfeder, an assemblyman from Rockaway, and Resorts World Casino, an operation owned by a Malaysian many-billion-dollar, multinational gambling conglomerate named Genting Group, have a lot in common.
Resorts World New York has proposed building a $4 billion convention center on land it leases from New York State at the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens. It has also discussed eliminating the racetrack element of the Aqueduct altogether.
As part of the ongoing discussions within the Malaysian gambling giant Genting, of which Resorts World is a subsidiary, there is talk of seeking to relocate the horse-racing that now takes place at
Aqueduct Racetrack to Belmont, according to someone who has been briefed by Genting.(3)
