Beginning Monday, January 20, one lucky fan at Aqueduct Racetrack will be presented with $1,000 to wager on the horse of his or her own choice as part of the new "Grand Mondays" promotion by The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA).
Each Monday for a limited time, guests can pick up a "Grand Mondays" entry form by the escalator on the first floor of the Big A's grandstand for a chance to win the $1,000 win voucher, which must be used in the eighth race that day. Entries will be collected at 1:30 p.m. and guests must be present to win. There is a limit of one entry per person.
"Our 'Grand Mondays' promotion will add extra excitement to the day and also help celebrate the fact we now are conducting live racing on Mondays through March," said Rodnell Workman, NYRA vice-president of marketing. "We think it will appeal to our established fans and attract new fans to racing."
All entrants must be 18 years of age and older, and winners must present valid identification to claim the voucher.
