I have not actually been to the racetrack, even though the people with a fair ticket can get in free. It was a long walk on an already long day (3 hours travel each way). Plus usually the races were being run when my kids were showing.
My SIL raced a horse here on the day that she gave birth to my oldest niece. She was having some labor pains.
[She was the trainer and not the jockey, but this involved wrapping the horse's legs for transport, loading him into the trailer, driving to the track (about a hour), unloading and unwrapping, saddling and warming the horse up, giving the jockey instructions, cooling down the horse after the race, and then repeating the transport section (wrapping, loading, driving, unloading and unwrapping) I don't know if the horse won].
Nine live races are scheduled daily with the exception of Saturdays and Labor Day when 10 races will be run. While there will be no live racing on Monday, August 30 and Tuesday, August 31, Timonium will simulcast races all ten days from other tracks which may include Monmouth, Saratoga, Delaware, Calder and Philadelphia Park. Post time each day is 1:00 PM.
