The owners of Batavia Downs are eager to learn more about Gov. Andrew Cuomo's proposal to open three new casinos in Upstate New York.

Western Regional Off-Track Betting has hopes of expanding its video-gaming operation into a full-scale casino, says the Batavia Daily News.

But the governor didn't offer any specifics when he made the proposal in this week's State of the State Address.

"We are reviewing the governor's proposals and await more details," said Ryan Hasenauer, director of marketing for WROTB and Batavia Downs.
