Hi again, folks, at the halfway point of the live racing season!
Tonight is the fourth and final Tuesday night of live racing--which means backyard paradise giveaway time! AND IT'S ALSO YOUR FINAL CHANCE to get into my Guess the Handle contest. It ends this week. So get involved--$250 is at stake! Good luck!
GUESS THE HANDLE: You know the routine: Predict the combined handle of tonight's and tomorrow's live races and email your prediction to email@example.com by 6 p.m. tonight (Tuesday). The entrant who comes within $1,000 without going over gets $200 plus a $50 bonus if he/she is at the track Wednesday night when the announcement is made.
Hint: There are eight races each night. Last week's combined handle was $368,000.
TONIGHT'S HIGHLIGHTS: This is also your last chance to get into the draw for a beautiful backyard barbeque and gazebo-type ensemble worth $2,000. THE DRAW TAKES PLACE TONIGHT! There are toonie treats, too, and happy hour bar prices all night. And $100 to win or place on your prime plays tonight automatically gives you $105 in bets.
The best seat in the house to watch the races, of course, is in the Terrace Dining Room where you can dig into an all-you-can-eat Prime Rib buffet for $24.95. Still room left. Phone 885-3330 to reserve. Or reserve for Wednesday night! Remember, though, you're restricted to 10 helpings of the multiple varieties of cheesecake from the decadently delicious dessert table. No, it's okay, you can have more. It's soooooo good!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT WONDERS:
--Ribs 'n' Wings special
--InstaFrame Fantastic Fan Sweepstakes. Enter the Triple Q Challenge and have a chance of being matched with a horse in the fifth race to win Fantastic Fan perks.
--Happy hour bar prices
COMING THURSDAY: What wise-cracking former Winnipegger was flying high after the $500,000 Prince of Wales stakes Sunday at Fort Erie? See Thursday's Insider to find out. Should bring back memories for ASD veterans!
In the meantime, see ya tonight at my "new and improved" Secrets stage presentation at 6:30 p.m.! -- Ivan
