Lone Star Park: And They're Off!
Spring has definitely sprung.
Tonight in Grand Prairie Lone Star Park kicks off another horse racing season with its $50,000 Premiere Stakes. The 6:30 post time will officially begin the track's 65-date season which will run through July
I won't necessarily make time for the Kentucky Derby or Breeder's Cup, but I will make a trek or two out to Lone Star Park each Spring. Go up to Silks for a fancy schmancy buffet. Get down and dirty with the wise guys as the horses make their entrance. Either way, the feel of "down the stretch they come" with a $10 exacta box in your hand can produce an adrenalin rush like no other in sports.
And if that doesn't do it for you, $5 admission and concerts this weekend by Randy Rogers (Friday) and
The Beach Boys Blake Shelton (Saturday) ought to do the trick.
