by Greg Blanchard, for The Raceway at Western Fair District
The month of Dec. is traditionally a busy one at The Raceway at Western Fair District and this year is no exception with a total of 15 programs being offered, including a special matinee program on Sunday (Dec. 18) at 1:05 p.m.
That day will also be State Treasurer Day at the races in honor of the three-time Molson Pace champion who has recently retired to stand stud at nearby Seelster Farms in Lucan. The world champion, who is a double millionaire, will be on hand to meet fans that afternoon as part of the festivities.
The Raceway has also planned a 16-race Super Card on Friday (Dec. 23) with an earlier than normal start time of 5:30 p.m. Horseplayers will have more chances to take home some last minute Christmas cash with the addition of a third Super Hi-5 and third Pick-4 wager. The Pick-4 pools that day will all be guaranteed at $10,000, while the early Pick-3 will feature a $5,000 guaranteed pool.
Fans are also reminded that the traditional Boxing Day program will go postward at 1:15 p.m. on Monday (Dec. 26) as well as the New Year’s Eve program on Saturday (Dec. 31) at 8:00 p.m.
There is still some limited seating at the Top of the Fair Restaurant for these dates. To make reservations, call 519.438.7203 (ext. 252) or email email@example.com.
