COME JOIN THE NVC/ NVC FOUNDATION FOR A DAY AT THE RACES AT EMERALD DOWNS

Coca Cola Handicap, 1 mile • Sunday, June 5, 2016   

Experience the excitement and pageantry of horse racing.  This is an experience that can be shared by all age levels and is a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon with the family. The NVC/NVC Foundation Day-at-the-Races program will include an optional breakfast at the Quarterchute Café (located in the barn area of Emerald Downs) and an exclusive tour of the barn area conducted by Vicki Potter. Vicki’s father and uncle were members of the NVC.   

Vicki is a horse owner and is a partner in a horse ownership group that includes our very own Don Maekawa.  Vicki and Don’s horse, Barkley, is scheduled to run on this day.  Come and support Don and cheer his horse to the winner’s circle.
