Thank you to all those that have responded to the RSVP!
Seating in the Trackside Tent will accommodate approximately 150+ and is first come, first serve. Remember that section 15 in the Grandstand will also accommodate you with your owner license. Again, just non-alcoholic beverages will be provided, but there will be a cash bar and mutuel teller in the Tents.
The lucky fifteen going to the paddock are:
- Linda Watkins
- Devin Ganwich
- Marty Smith
- Michael Riddle
- Michael Monelli
- Terry Hall
- Jay Richards
- Jessica Toon
- Wayne Campbell
- David Pitts
- Neva Sexton
- M. Vicky East
- Annie George
- Lana Nugent
- Steve Priem
Meet at the entrance to the Paddock immediately after the running of the 7th race. One of our customer service staff will escort the fifteen of you into the paddock for Charlie’s race. Wear your lanyards in a visible place.
For the rest of you…you can see Charlie being saddled from the outside of the paddock. The best view will be on the North side, so you’ll have to cross the horse path up by the track and then walk down on the other side. You can see from the photo, it’s on the far side where there aren’t many people.
After he is saddled, cheer him on from your favorite (lucky) spot!
Jockey Leslie Mawing will be wearing our silks and Charlie will have a red saddle towel for post position # 1.
IF Charlie Thomas should win…queue outside the Winner’s Circle and then we’ll bring you all down on the racetrack for the all important win photo.
Alas, there is no sure thing in horse racing and as owners, as long as he returns to the barn safe and healthy, that’s all we ask for.
For those of you unable to attend you can watch the race LIVE on Emeralddowns.com under Racing>Live Streaming OR you can download the Horse Races NOW app on your iPhone or Droid and watch the race live.
