Happy Fourth of July!
We thought that our new program “Breakfast at the Wire” might be of interest to Emerald Racing Club members that enjoy coming out to watch the morning workouts on the weekends.
From the Emerald Downs press release:
Breakfast at the Wire debuts Saturday, July 5 at Emerald Downs. Breakfast at the Wire offers race fans an insider’s glimpse of Thoroughbreds in training, with appearances by prominent jockeys, trainers, exercise riders, agents, gate crew and more. Patterned after similar programs such as Clocker’s Corner at Santa Anita and Del Mar, attendees get a close-up look at the racehorses and the “racetrackers” – the hard working people behind the scenes.
Hosted by Dean Mazzuca, Breakfast at the Wire is from 8 – 10 a.m. every Saturday during July and August and is located just past the finish line in front of the Trackside Deli on track level. The location offers optimum viewing of the horses’ workouts.
The program will offer a more leisurely format than the popular and structured Emerald AM programs offered once monthly.
“Breakfast at the Wire is a great way to experience the morning atmosphere at the track. No reservations are required – just show up and enjoy the culture of the racetrack,” said the program’s creator Vicki Potter.
With Mt. Rainier serving as a towering backdrop, Emerald Downs will serve breakfast priced at only $6. Breakfast features a choice of scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns or scrambled with biscuits and gravy, and includes free parking and entry through the Paddock Gate from 8-to-9 a.m.
