Jockey Appreciation Night • Run The Mile
Jockey Appreciation Night
Every year tracks across the country come together to support the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. We have selected tonight for our annual recognition of this event.
We will have our annual Jockey Foot Race and we will have an autograph table and other items up for donations at a tent right near the Jockey Quarters across from the Paddock.
We’re also honoring the Longacres Mile which will be run Sunday, Aug. 11. On this day YOU can run the Mile distance right on the racetrack.
Run the Mile at 10:30 AM. Check in begins at 9:30 AM. Just $20 to participate. Ages 17 and under are free. All proceeds will be donated to the PDJF (Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund). All participants receive two tickets for Saturday racing and two tickets for Sunday racing.
After the races join us for Dancing at the Downs
