|SHRP Sets New 4:00 p.m. Post Time
for Sundays in February and March
(January 15, 2003)-
Sam Houston Race Park will add Sundays to the live Thoroughbred
racing schedule beginning Sunday, February 2, 2003. The first race
will begin at 4:00 p.m. (CST), a departure from the previous post
time of 5:00 p.m.
"We considered many factors in making this change,"
said Robert L. Bork, president and general manager of Sam Houston
Race Park. "Many of our local fans have expressed interest
in afternoon racing and we have a solid group of simulcast players
here on Sundays that will hopefully stay to play our live races.
We feel that the earlier post will coincide nicely with the conclusion
of the race card from New York and Florida and that some of their
fans will watch and wager on our races."
The 2002/2003 Sam Houston Race Park Thoroughbred meeting continues
through Sunday, March 30, 2003. Live racing is set for each Thursday,
Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Sunday racing will begin at 4:00
p.m. and conclude by 8:00 p.m.
