Don’t Miss the 2008 Season at Les Bois Park

Submitted by

Capitol Racing took over ownership of Les Bois Park just over two years ago, and will not only be hosting its third racing season this year, but has brought positive changes to the racecourse. Les Bois, translated from the French language and meaning “The Woods”, has been home to live horse racing since the early 1970’s. All year round entertainment and a full racing program during the summer months have brought constant income to the park and seen an increase in attendance.

The racing season will kick off on the 2nd of May 2008 and all entrance to the grandstand will be free of charge. The best quarter horses will be in action during the Premier Handicap. Saturday, the 3rd of May, will feature an afternoon filled with thoroughbred horse racing, and spectators and attendees will be able to watch all the racing action from the Kentucky Derby simulcast. Every racing event is accompanied by entertainment, spectacular facilities and special features. The racing season will offer forty-six days of action packed racing splendor. Horses have been arriving and training for last few weeks to be in top form for the start of the season.

Promotions, contests, live music and special racing celebrations, such as the Idaho Cup Day, along with racing and entertainment offered on events such as the Triple Crown races, make Les Bois Park a popular attraction with racing fans and punters. Families are able to enjoy a day at the races, and by catering for a diverse crowd, the park is able to attract people from all walks of life.

Facilities at the racetrack include a hundred and fifty television monitors, whereby punters can watch horse racing from around the country and international events. There is also tranquil dining at the air-conditioned turf club or the opportunity to enjoy a cold refreshment in the sports bar.

Les Bois Park has continued renovations and improvements to their services to ensure that trainers and owners are happy to return their horses to a racecourse that offers secure and safe facilities for them. Some trainers have even increased the number of horses that they have entered for 2008, which is proof of their confidence in the track and satisfaction with purses and spectator support. Each year seems to be an improvement on the previous, and Capitol Racing seems to be successful in fulfilling a goal of good racing, magnificent entertainment and offering services and conveniences that everyone can enjoy.
