Archie to train Sunday before Orientation

Archie will train Sunday, April 10 at 10:45 am. To watch him train, come in the main admission gates, walk straight out to track level to the track apron (where the benches are).

I will be there standing on a bench and will point him out when he goes by. He’ll also be wearing the green and white checkered saddle towel for the Club.

No cost for Emerald Racing Club members and guest. If you have additional guests you’d like to bring, they may join you for the party. Additional tickets will be $20 and can be purchased at the door.

Reminder: You must be licensed by Sunday, April 10. You’ll need to show your license in order to receive your Emerald Racing Club Lanyard.

Can’t make it?

Don’t worry, I will post a recap of the Orientation here on the blog for those unable to attend.

    • Hi Jim – You can pick it up from our receptionist in the Administration office. Just know that she’ll be very swamped tomorrow and I’ll be on the TV show all day. Thanks!

  1. Archie looks great, can’t wait to see him! For those who are new to the club, you are in for a season of fun, if last year (when I was a newbie) was any indication. There is nothing that will put a smile on your face quite like watching your horse cross the wire first. Looking forward to EMD’s 20th year of racing!

  2. I plan on being at Emerald Downs on Sunday with a friend and wonder if

    we need to RSVP. (Not sure if I will be early enough to see the workout.)

  3. Looking forward to Sunday. Not sure if we can get there in time for Archie’s run. My husband will be joining me so I assume I use one of the guest passes for him tomorrow.
