It’s been two years since the first Virginia Equine Alliance Off Track Betting Center opened at Breakers Sports Grille in Henrico. We’re going to celebrate with a two-day bash on Friday November 30th and Saturday December 1st.
On Friday, we’ll have a free appetizer buffet from 4-7 PM as a thank you to both racing fans and restaurant/bar patrons for making Breakers a great success. There will be prize drawings for betting vouchers throughout the day/evening and we’ll have free past performance programs from the most popular tracks available for free.
On Saturday, we’ve got a free “Pick The Horses” handicapping contest on tap and $1,000 is cash is on the line. The five contestants that accumulate the highest mythical bankrolls will share the $1,000 ($500-$250-$125-$75-$50).
Racing fans will enjoy a number of high profile stakes to watch and wager Saturday including the $750,000 Cigar Mile (Gr. I) and three others at Aqueduct, a total of 9 Claiming Crown races at Gulfstream worth a combined $1.1 million, the Grade I Hollywood Derby from Del Mar and to top it off, it’s opening weekend at Tampa Bay Downs and they host a pair of $100,000 stakes.
