Fort Erie Live Racing Consortium General Manager Jim Thibert has divulged that racetrack operator Delaware North is not the prospective buyer of the Fort Erie Race Track, but he has not offered much else regarding the deal that has been dubbed as ‘imminent’ since late July.

Thibert’s comments regarding Delaware North have come via a report by The Buffalo News.

As he did in late July, Thibert stated that the deal is very close to being official and reiterated that the prospective buyers are based out of Buffalo, NY.

“If it was a hundred-mile journey, we’re on the last six yards. The closing could be today or tomorrow,” the article has quoted him as saying.

“We’re very happy with the owners and very familiar with them,” Thibert said. “Fort Erie and Buffalo are the most bi-national communities on the border. I think you would be hard-pressed to find communities along the 3,000-mile border that share so much as Buffalo and Fort Erie, and have for 125 years. It is great to have Buffalo owners.”
