After having vowed legal action over the bidding process to become operator of the Monmouth Park racetrack in New Jersey, it has been reported that John Brunetti will not be pursuing a challenge


An article by explains that Brunetti's attorney, Paul P. Josephson, sent a letter to state officials saying that he is not going to appeal the Monmouth bidding process to the legal system.

Brunetti's team had contested the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority's decision to allow the New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association to operate the raceway at Monmouth Park.

Brunetti's team had appealed the decision to the NJSEA, which in turn upheld its original decision.

Monmouth's 2012 meet is scheduled to kick off May 12.

The report also states that NJTHA and Brunetti, who operates Florida's Hialeh Park, will explore the possibility of potential circuit between the two tracks.
