Friday, April 4, 2008 the Profane

Emerald Downs' 2008 racing season opens on Friday, April 18, with the first live race at 6pm. This is gonna be my lucky year, I can feel it.

Big events this year include the 73rd running of the $300,000 Longacres Mile on Sunday, August 17, and the running of the Washington Cup on Sunday, September 14, which features seven $300,000 stakes races, all of which are restricted to Washington-bred horses. Of course, Friday is always special at Emerald Downs, with $1.50 beers all evening long.

And in a very nice example of gambling synergy, any $5 "Mega Millions" lottery ticket purchased between now and April 17th gets you a voucher for free admission to the Downs on opening night. You can't lose!
