Colonial Downs’ Fan Appreciation Day is early in the season this year – tomorrow, Saturday June 13th – and they are opening early at 11 AM to accommodate fans. Ten races are scheduled to run from 12:55 PM – 5:15 PM including the $50,000 Daniel Van Clief Stakes presented by Buck Pond Farm.

General admission and Colonial Downs Race programs are 25 cents each. Hot dogs, chips and soft drinks are 25 cents each and to keep lines moving smoothly, transactions in the giant Fan Appreciation tent are $1.00 and will include two hot dogs, a bag of chips and a soft drink.
Everyone will also receive a 2009 Summer Fun Coupon Book.

Colonial will also host its first ever Hot Dog Eating Contest on the winners circle stage after the 7th race. The first ten people to register that day get to compete.
