Along with the races, guests will enjoy live bluegrass music, food vendors and several horse-themed merchandise tents.  The paddock, where horses are paraded before the jockeys are mounted, is open to the public.  Gates open at 10:00 a.m.  The first race is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.  This is a rain or shine event.
