Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas launches the 2010 race season with four days of live racing, beginning Friday, January 10. The annual back-in-time Saturday features bargain 50 cent corned beef sandwiches (Oaklawn has GREAT corned beef) and 10 cent soft drinks. Such a deal, if you don’t mind waiting in line!
Oaklawn has the highest attendance of any live race meet in the U.S., with enthusiastic fans, trainers, and owners coming from all over the country. Since I know nothing about racing, I enjoy watching the horses, jockeys, and people studying the racing forms. While we serve breakfast at the inn, guests pore over the morning’s guides, circling in on their favs.
Come visit Lookout Point and Hot Springs during the race meet! We’ll be happy to make reservations for you at Oaklawn Park.
