Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is getting ready for its biggest night of racing on Oct. 19 when the track hosts the Breeders Crown. All 12 championship races will be held in one night at the track in Northeastern Pennsylvania, with more than $6 million in purses.
Several ticket options will be available, and all go on sale Saturday, Sept. 7, at 12 noon (EDT) through Ticketmaster.
A VIP tent will be set up on the newly-renovated racing apron, and tickets will be available for $40, which will include a sumptuous buffet and a complimentary commemorative program. Limited tickets are available for this tent, which includes table seating.
Patio tables are also available, which is the best view of the beautiful track, and the tables overlook the stretch and finish line. The price for a table of four is $50, and for a table of two is $25. Each includes one complimentary commemorative program.
The track will also offer dozens of benches and tables scattered throughout the apron, and they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 3 p.m. Patio bleacher seating will be complimentary as well, and will also be open to the public after 3 p.m.
Anyone arriving the week before for the eliminations are encouraged to make their hotel reservations as soon as possible. The Best Western East Mountain Inn, Wilkes Barre, Pa., is offering a special rate. Please mention Breeders Crown when calling for reservations. Their phone number is (570) 822-1011. (Pocono Downs)
