Richmond OTBs To Offer Free Race Programs During “March Madness”

The Virginia Equine Alliance’s two Off Track Betting Centers in Richmond will celebrate their own version of “March Madness” with a special free program promotion in the month of March.

The OTBs at Breakers Sports Grille (in the west end) and Ponies & Pints (downtown) will participate on Wednesdays and Thursdays respectively. Customers at Breakers will receive free track past performance programs from Gulfstream, Tampa Bay Downs, Turf Paradise and Dover Downs every Wednesday beginning March 7th. Horseplayers at Ponies & Pints will receive free programs from Gulfstream, Fair Grounds, Santa Anita and Dover Downs every Thursday beginning March 8th.

The OTB at Breakers Sports Grille will have free Gulfstream, Tampa Bay, Turf Paradise & Dover Downs programs every Wednesday in March.

In April, the promotion will switch away from weekday giveaways to weekends instead, when major Kentucky Derby prep races like the Santa Anita Derby, Wood Memorial, Toyota Bluegrass Stakes and Arkansas Derby are held. Later in the month, programs for the $1.2 million Charles Town Classic will be included in the giveaway.

The Ponies & Pints OTB has beverage specials daily from 11 AM – 7 PM and food specials many nights including a Sunday brunch. It is located at 110 N. 18th Street in the Shockoe Bottom neighborhood.

The promotion will save horseplayers up to $6 on each visit when the program offer occurs. Customers normally pay $1.50 for each track program through a kiosk. Programs included in the giveaway will be pre-printed.
