We had some good news from Lone Star Park yesterday:
We WILL be getting 5 additional race days Sept 17th – Oct 29th. This will ADD race days for Sept 17, October 1, October 27, 28, 29 for Book 1.
The Racing Secretary has asked the Arabian Community to step up and fill races on these additional days as well as our scheduled races. That gives us a total of 14 race days to fill – one race a day with the exception of opening day due to no overnight.
Many times I have been told “If we only had more races” or “They should give us a race a day.” So, you asked for it, and now we are being given the opportunity to do just that.
That said, it is important to know who will be here, how many horses, and what conditions we need to put on the overnight. I need to know asap who is planning on entering for the Sept 17th date. We will be guaranteed races, even if they are extras on the overnight to fulfill the track's request.
This is the perfect opportunity to show we can come together as a breed and fill more races than we have been given in the past.
Please reach out to me by email, phone, or text (817) 933-0961.
I look forward to seeing everyone and having a great meet at Lone Star Park.
