There are a lot of new things to see at Batavia Downs. It reopened Thursday after a major expansion that included a larger gambling floor and three new restaurants. There are also 200 additional gaming machines.

Mike Kane said, “We're probably two thirds into the project. I think you'll see a real wow factor in the new entry and atrium when that's completed.”

The new facility also now includes a sports bar, which was dedicated to Hall of Fame Bills running back Thurman Thomas.
