The holiday season is upon us and with Christmas Eve & Day, and New Years & Day, falling on weekends, Monday December 26 and January 2nd have become holidays in a way too. And the new Breakers Off Track Betting Center in Richmond will have plenty going on both days.
On Monday the 26th, Santa Anita hosts their annual “Day After Christmas” stakes filled card. A pair of $300,000, Grade I stakes are on tap — the La Brea and Malibu — along with the Grade 2 Mathis Brothers Mile and Grade 3 San Simeon Handicap.
The following Monday, January 2nd, is a Customer Appreciation event at Breakers. As a thank you for the tremendous support so far from area horseplayers, we’re offering a free appetizer buffet from 1-4 PM, and prize drawings all day from 1-8 PM. Every hour, a $25 betting voucher and a $25 gift card to apply toward racing programs will be given away through random drawings. Aqueduct will host an early Derby prep that day too — the Grade 3 Jerome Stakes.
