With the announcement of Eldorado Resorts, Inc. partnering with The Cordish Companies in the development of a world class hospitality destination site at Pompano Park, Midwest Auctioneers and Realty has announced that they have signed a definitive agreement with PPI Inc. to conduct a two-day auction at Pompano Park on Sunday, Aug. 5, beginning at 12 noon, and Monday, Aug. 6, beginning at 9 a.m. There will be a two-day preview on Aug. 3 and 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
 
The event will feature six floors of items--many historical--dating back to the track's infancy years beginning in 1964.
 
Besides the live on-site auction, bids will be accepted at Proxibid.com, where registrations will be accepted beginning Aug. 1 through sale time.
 
In announcing the auction, sales manager Jim Brown said, "This sale will, obviously, be unique as we will not only have chairs and tables but even box seat numbers and name plaques from many of the most prominent participants in our sport since this historic racing facility opened more than a half century ago.

"We will have the pari-mutuel signs, sculptures and memorabilia, restaurant equipment and, even, the legendary bars on the floors graced by folks like Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Ed Sullivan, Lorne Green and so many others."

Also included in the auction will be vehicles, including a boom truck, John Deere equipment and Terex generators with light poles.

Midwest Auctioneers and Realty president Mike Baker, who has been conducting auctions for the better part of four decades, will be the lead auctioneer.

Speaking about the Pompano Park upcoming auction, Baker said, "This is going to be a great one, no doubt about it. It's always great to see a company take that big step from the past into the future and this auction will serve as one giant step toward their future success. We are honored to host the historic event."

A complete list of the auction items will be posted when available.
