Anyone remember ''Lake Wales Jai-alai''?

Corporate filing in 1974:
    President - Richard P Donovan
    Secretary - H Paul Rico
From NY Times (1976 article):
    Last year when a Miami promoter tried to introduce parimutuel betting and build a jai‐alai fronton, he was turned down by a two to one margin in county‐wide referendum. The Polk Countians United Against Gambling were led by a Baptist minister.
That was World Jai-Alai. Obviously never made it, but, "what if?"
