The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA) in the last week of April 2003, said it would seek to sell or lease its two horse racetracks, which have a combined 218 million dollars in debt. “We wouldn't want this debt to be stranded debt. If there was a sale, the debt would be paid,” said Jim Debosh, a spokesman for the NJSEA. Debosh said the racetracks' outstanding debt was a mix of revenue-backed debt, revenue supported by state contract debt, and general appropriation-backed state contract debt.
