I see no way out for Retama. Racetracks are a thing of the past. Gamblers today aren't going to go through the trouble of researching a horse's history (at least not gamblers in and around San Antonio). Gamblers here might flock to slot machines and card tables, but I don't think Las Vegas would be happy with that. Even so, I don't see four months as long enough to come up with a solution. The bond holders are sunk.

Javier Carvajal

The bond holders extended this because they of course want to get paid. This bail out they are waiting for is highly unlikely. This is one idea that looked good on paper but in reality was a very poor investment. I do not see anyone being the savior in this and Retama Park will be closed like many others throughout Texas

Okay so you think it is toes up for Retama

Now never mind that, what do we do with the track in the future, think forward not rear view mirror

The reason the bond holders agree to extend this one payment is because they would probably get zero dollars. It reminds me of a movie called "It’s a Wonderful Life." In the movie George the small town owner of the Savings and Loans had a calm head when the Great Depression came to the small town. It is good that these bond holders agreed to extend this one payment. But, I wonder how many times the bond holders will give Retama this break, before the bond holders start to take legal action.

Dustin Yaklin

I live near the Retama and I have never ever seen it packed or even half full of cars or people. There is no survival for them. I hope the employees have already found new jobs, including the jockies. I have been the once and it was not near as exciting as I anticipated.
