ATTENTION: OWNERS/TRAINERS & BACKSTRETCH PERSONNEL CANCELLATION OF LIVE RACE DAY CENTURY MILE Sunday – August 11th, 2019 Please be advised that Thoroughbred Racing Scheduled for Sunday, August 11, 2019 at Century Mile Racetrack and Casino is cancelled due to insufficient entries. Every effort will be made to add the lost races to upcoming cards.
RE: THURSDAY – AUGUST 15, 2019 at CENTURY MILE Please be advised that Century Casino and The HBPA of Alberta jointly requested and received approval from Horse Racing Alberta (HRA) of our desire to cancel Thursday August 15 from the 2019 Century Mile Thoroughbred Race Schedule. The Thursday denoted lies two days prior to what in the past has been the marquee event of the annual thoroughbred racing calendar – The Canadian Derby. The HBPA Board of Directors and Century’s management were of the view that consolidating three days of racing to two cards would be beneficial for all. So that our members have the same racing opportunities, assuming there is demand and support at the entry box, we can see as many as 12 races carded for both August 17 & 18. In the past up to 13 races have been carded on Derby day. Traditionally Derby Day produces by far the largest on track attendance of the meet thus,
Century Casinos has made available to HBPA members and their guests a reserved table for each race day at Century Mile (excluding the Canadian Derby). The Table located on the second floor in the Finish Line Restaurant seats six (6) however, the table can be reserved for a minimum of two (2) guests. It will be necessary to purchase food and/or beverages during your visit. Century is offering discounted pricing of $28.50/person for the Buffet, however, there is also an option to order off the a la carte menu. As an added bonus, free race programs will be provided for each guest. Current post times are: Thursday 5:55 pm. Saturday & Sunday at 1:45 pm. It will be necessary to arrive at the table by the first post. The Table will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact Theresa Sealy at firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings. Requests for Thursday evening racing are to be made the preceding Sunday morning.
It has come to our attention that not all HBPA members and backside personnel are following proper protocol pertaining to issues and matters that occur during the normal course of business at the Century Mile Backstretch. The HBPA's role is to represent the interests of its members and workers in all dealings with the Track Operator. Should you find that there is an operational issue or any other matter that needs rectifying, please bring it forward to the HBPA Backstretch Directors - Tim Rycroft, Rod Gonen Craig Smith, Joan Petrowski, or Linda Smith. If for any reason these Directors are unavailable, please address your concerns with our on track representative Theresa Sealy (403-540-8707). You can also contact me anytime via my cell at 403-650-6448. Should you fail to reach any of the aforementioned, please forward your issues to Century Racing Management prior to going outside the Century Facility. They will contact me and we will work on a solution to all
