Resorts World Casino operators want to buy the naming rights to the Aqueduct Racetrack subway station.

Resorts World Casino is looking to stake a claim on its subway stop.

The Aqueduct Racetrack station was recently established as a year-round stop on the A-line after a $15 million upgrade. Now, casino operators want to buy the station’s naming rights.

A Resorts World spokesperson said the group has had “some very preliminary conversations with the MTA” about the matter, but “nothing more at this point.”

Prior to the renovations, the subway stop was an antiquated facility that only operated on race days. Now, the racetrack station allows the A train to pass through 24/7 from the Rockaways up to Inwood. Additionally, a SkyBridge walkway connects the stop to the casino through an enclosed, temperature-controlled path.
