Nine will get a shot at $10,000, one at $100,000, at June 30 races
June 30 will be the first of three race days at Arizona Downs this season where fans will have a shot at winning up to $100,000 with just one swing of a golf club.
The contest is open to those who sign up on race day and are in attendance for the day’s final race. Just before that race, a golf strip will be stretched across the Winner’s Circle, with a bucket placed 100 yards away. Ten fans will be randomly selected from that day’s entries – nine will get one shot with a pitching wedge to get a golf ball into that bucket for $10,000. Then, one lucky fan will take a shot for $100,000.
The contest will take place at races on June 30, July 28, and August 25.
“Together with our partners at Insurance Office of America, we thought it would be a lot of fun to offer this amazing opportunity to our fans,” said General Manager Mike Weiss. “It’s always a great day to come out and enjoy an afternoon at the track, but it’s a really great day when you can enjoy an afternoon at the track and walk home with $100,000.”
Arizona Downs has partnered with the Arizona Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association to develop the most attractive race program in track history. Live racing happens every Tuesday and Wednesday through September – 32 dates in all. The track is being managed by Peninsula Pacific Entertainment (P2E), a trailblazer in the gaming, racing and entertainment industry. Among the properties they own and operate is Colonial Downs, a Virginia thoroughbred track that had been shuttered for six years and now serves as a thriving, revenue-generating entertainment destination.
