New Meetup: Meet me at the races!

From: Jo Ann S.
Sent on: Friday, January 15, 2010 10:14 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The "Tucson Beer Nutz-What Can I Say, I Love BEER" Club!

What: Meet me at the races!

When: Saturday, February 6,[masked]:15 PM

Where:
Rillito Raceway
4502 N 1st Ave
Tucson, AZ 85719

General admission is FREE on Saturdays!! Free is good!

We will meet in the Grandstand area. That is the big bleacher-seating area. I don't think you can miss it, but you can always call me if you get lost. (520)[masked].

Bring your gambling bucks. There is not only parimutuel betting, but you will want to buy a race program and maybe some betting tips. The track has alcoholic beverages and food available. (Read beer & hot dogs. Okay. They have more than that, but it is a racetrack people.)

I have cross-posted this event on Tucson's Neighborhood Bars & Stars site.

There is a $1 event fee. I will also be collecting for the Red Cross Haiti fund. Any donations, big or small, are welcome!

RILLITO PARK RACE TRACK HISTORY

Rillito Park Race Track is rich in history. It?s the birth place of Quarter Horse racing as well as the photo finish. Rillito has a 5/8 mile race track that hosts Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing several sunny weekends each year in Tucson, Arizona. In 1996 Rillito Park was recognized by the American Quarter Horse Association?s American Quarter Horse Foundation as a Historical Marker.

Over the years, famous horses including Shue Fly, Joe Reed II, Piggin String, Hard Twist, Queenie, and Miss Panama have raced at Rillito.

Kentucky Derby winning trainer Bob Baffert's first Quarter Horse winner was Baron at Flagstaff, Arizona in 1971. His first Thoroughbred winner was Flipper Star on January 28, 1979 at Rillito.
