Vernon Downs is all set for the 2012 opening weekend of live racing with 10 races being drawn for opening night on Friday, April 27, with a post time of 6:55 p.m. Fans of Vernon Downs will be welcomed back with a race date t-shirt and race date magnet giveaway at the front entrance of Vernon Downs (while supplies last). Also on tap for opening night will be the promotion, Cash It or Stash It, the ever popular Horseplay Car Giveaway, and the night will round out with fireworks immediately following live racing.
Race secretary Scott Warren has put together a 12-race card for Saturday night, April 28, with a post time of 6:55 p.m., led by a $9,500 seven-horse Open Pace. The seven-horse race has stirred up some talented pacers led by Western Trademark, Sheer Brilliance, and the Vernon Downs' hometown favorite of Diamond Stick Pin.
Saturday night's track promotion in addition to the Horseplay Car Giveaway--night two, is That's My Driver. (Vernon Downs)
