Race seminar at Caesars

Feb 15, 2005 10:40 AM

Looking for something this week that won’t cost you a lot of money? Chuck Esposito over at the newly remodeled Caesars Palace Race and Sports book has just the answer if you enjoy playing the horses.

This Saturday and Sunday, from 7-8 a.m. Felix Taverna, host of Race and Sports Radio, will broadcast his radio show live from the Caesars Palace Race and Sports book.

Saturday, there will be a seminar at 9 a.m. with Tom Quigley (Horse Player Magazine), California clocker/analyst Toby Turrell, Frank Tate (Trainer/Analyst) and California correspondent Larry Zap. The seminar is followed by a free handicapping contest involving the card from Santa Anita that day.

Quigley and Tate will square off against Turrell and Zap in a team handicapping contest. KOGO is heard in San Diego and Los Angeles. The program will also be streamed over the Internet at www.kogo.com

Entries are limited to one per person with a $2.00 win/place bet on the Santa Anita races. Total money accumulated will win. Some of the prizes will include a weekend stay at Caesars Palace, tickets to either Celine Dion or Elton John and several door prizes.

Esposito says that he is very excited about the event and that early response has been great. He is hoping to do a format like this quarterly and expand to a bigger event in the future.

It will also be a great opportunity to reintroduce race players to the book at Caesars, where every seat has it’s own individual TV monitor and is on the finish line. This will be a very good time, and it’s free.

Count me in.
