April 21st is the first Saturday in months that does not feature a key prep race for the May 5th Kentucky Derby. Don’t fret — there are still several reasons why this is a “must attend” Saturday at the OTBs, especially at downtown Richmond’s Ponies & Pints location.
You can enjoy lunch or dinner, sip your favorite libation, and bet Charles Town’s only afternoon card of the year! Their signature $1.2 Million Charles Town Classic is the featured event along with a great under card. Laurel has a big day with five $100,000 stakes and it’s Keeneland’s final Saturday card of their spring meet.
