Hudson Yards developer Related Companies is putting its money on a hot horse from Vegas in the turbulent race to open a casino resort in Manhattan.

The real estate giant, headed by Stephen M. Ross, has teamed up with Wynn Resorts to “pursue” a casino license for the western rail yard – the proposed second half of the 28-acre Hudson Yards complex, Related said on Thursday.

Building the Yards’ western portion, which is now an exposed and sunken train yard, has been a priority not only for Related, but for Gov. Kathy Hochul as it was for her predecessor Andrew Cuomo.
