A ribbon cutting will officially open the third Colonial Downs – Rosie’s Gaming Emporium location in Richmond on Monday July 1st at 10:45 AM. Doors will then open to the public at 11 AM and the first 500 customers will receive a free Rosie’s commemorative t-shirt.
Located in the former Kmart building on Midlothian Turnpike just north of Chippenham Parkway, this Rosie’s will be the largest of the ones that are currently open. The New Kent site (at the racetrack itself) has 600 Historical Horse Racing terminals and the Vinton location (just outside of Roanoke) has 150 machines.
The Richmond Rosie’s will feature 700 terminals split between three sections — a smoking, non-smoking and high limit area. There also is a live racing simulcast area where fans can bet races via satellite from tracks around the country.
The site has 840 parking spaces and can accommodate several thousand customers.
