    Emerald Downs Announces Purse Increase
    12/19/2014


    Overnight purses will be enhanced 20 percent at Emerald Downs in 2015.

    PURSES BOOSTED FOR 2015 RACING SEASON


    AUBURN, Wash. (December 19, 2014) – Average daily purse distribution will increase approximately 20 percent for the 2015 live racing season at Emerald Downs.

    Horsemen were notified of the increase last week when stall applications were mailed in preparation for the 70-day live racing season. The increase will be made possible by ongoing purse enhancements from the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, which since 2004 has provided Emerald Downs with $11,954,825 in purse supplements.

    Pending approval by the Washington Horse Racing Commission, the meeting will run April 18 through September 27 with racing Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The 2015 season marks the 20th season of live racing at Emerald Downs.

    In November it was announced that the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe had agreed in principle to acquire Emerald Downs and its assets. The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe is expected to obtain the WHRC license necessary to own and operate Emerald Downs and its off-track wagering facilities. The process is ongoing and the license is expected to be awarded early in 2015.

    Emerald Downs’ stable area opens January 31 with training beginning February 2. The 2015 stakes schedule, including the 80th running of the Grade 3 Longacres Mile, will be announced early next year.

    Stall applications are available online at emeralddowns.com in the horsemen section.
