Delaware North misses on Aqueduct Casino deal

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – In what is being targeted as a politically motivated move, Governor David Paterson has selected Aqueduct Entertainment Group as the operator of a major casino in the New York City area.

The group is supported by the Reverend Floyd Flake, an influential entity in New York City and a person who could help in Paterson's re-election bid.

The decision leaves Buffalo's Delaware North Companies hopeful for reconsideration should Aqueduct Entertainment not be able to meet the conditions of their bid.
