He also says he would like to return NYRA to the private sector following its takeover by the state.

Despite the high temperatures forecasted for Friday, Kay says he has no plans to cancel racing for Opening Day. He says they are prepared to handle the heat, expected to hit the mid-90s.

Kay took over NYRA on July 1st.
