Seminole impact on Bonita
Track owner wants gambling expansion like Indians'
The Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track will eventually close and be sold unless the Florida Legislature lets it expand gaming to compete with Seminole Indians at venues such as Immokalee.
So says Barbara Hecht Havenik, the CEO of the Bonita Springs track as well as racing/gambling complex at Flager.
She made the statement in a Monday, March 9, interview with the Daily News editorial board.
She said the Bonita track loses money on greyhound racing and needs to compete to survive.
