The Extra Mile Owner Appreciation events are designed to create opportunities to engage and network with current owners and thank them for their continued support of racing. Loyal owners are the foundation of the sport. They have a base level of knowledge, provide stability for breeders, trainers and stables and can be a significant factor in attracting new owners. These events will celebrate and recognize owners for their dedication to racing. Date – Saturday August 7th, 2021 Time – 9 am – 12 pm FREE coffee and muffins for you and free treats available for your horses! Location – Century Mile Tarmac Please join us for a morning of watching the horses work and a chance to visit your horses in the barns afterwards! FREE PROGRAMS TO THE FIRST 20 OWNERS!
