8. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
The Company is party to a number of pending legal proceedings related to matters that occurred in the normal course of business. Management does not expect that the outcome of any such proceedings, either individually or in the aggregate, will have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
Options to Purchase or Lease Land
La Posada del Llano Racetrack Proposal in New Mexico. In July 2018, the Company paid $125,000 for options to purchase approximately 520 acres of adjoining land in Clovis, New Mexico as part of its racetrack casino proposal to the New Mexico Racing Commission. The proposal was in response to the New Mexico Racing Commission’s request for proposals related to the potential issuance of the state’s sixth racing license (“RFP”). In July 2019, the Company paid an additional $125,000 to renew these land options. In August 2019, the New Mexico Racing Commission announced that it would not issue the sixth racing license at this time. Due to uncertainties surrounding the timing of the RFP process, as well as uncertainties created by the ongoing pandemic, the Company elected to let the New Mexico land options expire in July 2020. Accordingly, the Company wrote-off these option deposits totaling $250,000 in the second quarter of 2020, reflected on the income statement under “Project development costs.”
