There will also be a tour of the barn area and the S.J.H.H.A invite fans to stay after the live card for a night of entertainment.
Plus, there will be handicapping tips for newcomers, a planned seminar, and a chance to see California Chrome try and become the first triple crown winner in thirty-five years.

This, and seven thrilling races, the fourth leg of the yearly handicapping challenge, and as always admission and parking are free. Join in the national challenge and bring a friend to the races, Saturday, post-time at 2:00 P.M.
