Jeff Gural has gone on the record as saying that he is waiting on a revised memorandum of understanding from the State of New Jersey to take over control of the Meadowlands Racetrack, and that he perceives a September, 2011 takeover date.

According to a report by The Record, Gural is "shooting for a takeover on September 1."

The article also states that Cantor Gaming, one of Gural's partners in the revitalization of the Meadowlands, has pulled out. Gural is reportedly not concerned about the turn of events
