The Raceway at the Western Fair District, fresh off a $422,326 handle on Monday, is pleased to announce that advanced wagering on all live harness racing cards will now be available starting at 12:30 p.m. daily.
Raceway Manager Ian Fleming stated, " Our fans have asked for the early opening, and we have seen a segment of our patrons that cannot sometimes make it for the early races, due to other commitments." He added, "during the first few days of this new innovation, we have witnessed numerous fans coming on their lunch hours to wager on our product and even buy their lunch here, while making their picks."
The Raceway will also feature the Free FM Hippity Hop Trot this Friday night. Free FM will be broadcasting live from the track, and patrons will have a chance to win a piece of the $ 500. up for grabs, plus Raceway promotional prize packages. The lucky fan who has the winning horse in the Hippity Hop Trot will get to present the horse with the Free FM cooler in the winner's circle.
Racing continues four days a week during April, with Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday post times at 4:05 and Friday nights at 7:05.
