A Night at the Races - Balmoral Park in Crete

  • Apr 13, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Giddy-up Race Fans - Come out for dinner and horse racing

This meetup is for the buffet dinner and the races.   The buffet runs from 6:30 - 8:30, with dessert served until 9:00pm.  

The cost is $25.95/per person for the buffet; this price DOES NOT include soft-drinks/liquor, tip, or tax.   Please figure that into your cost.  Also note, that soft-drinks are not free-refills.  This Saturday's buffet is their crab-leg buffet.

When you get to the track, go to Admissions.  Let them know you have a reservation in the dining room under "Anderson".  They will direct you to the elevator to the 3rd floor.   If you want to purchase a program, you should do it at this time, as they do not sell programs on the 3rd floor.

Please bring enough cash to cover your bill, tax, and tip.

Wagering on the races is whatever you choose to spend.  Minimum bet per race is $2.

They have a free parking lot, or you can valet for $5.

Admission is $2 and you will want to purchase a program for the races (as you enter)

Post Time for the first race is 7:10.   You will not be admitted into the Balmoral Club dining room unless you are purchasing the buffet.   If you choose to just come for the races, you will not be sitting with the meetup group.

We will meet in the Balmoral Dining Club at 6:30, reservation is under Jeannie Anderson.

A reservation is required for this event.  Cancellations within 48-hours of this event will count as a no-show and the group's 3-strike rule will apply.

    I just looked at the website. They have information on the races and some stat info on the drivers and trainers if you want to pick out a few horses to bet on for the first few races. Since we get there at 6:30 and post is 7:10, you might not have much time to review the program (while eating) before the races start.

    I'll definitely come as I live just down the street, but I've had the buffet and I can't justify spending $24 on it. If we can get at least 12 people, we can get a StableSuite party going. The options are here:
