Horsemen have been happy with the track in both the qualifying and training sessions and are pleased with both the times that the track has yielded and the cushion that is safer for the horses participating.
Horsemen are reminded that they need a copy of their current coggins in their possession when they enter the backside at Rosecroft unless they have already given the race office a copy. In addition, each participant needs to fill out and return a Release and Waiver before entering the backside and they’ll also need to fill out a 2011 Racing Application before entering in overnights. There is still plenty of room for all classes of horses wishing to race at Rosecroft to apply for racing privileges.
