"America's Day at the Races" was designed on a national level to introduce the world of Thoroughbred racing to new fans and increase public awareness of the sport as a "National Holiday for Horse Lovers."
Celebrated on Labor Day Monday again this year, the highlight of the program will be the "America's Day at the Races Pick Three." The three races involved will begin at River Downs with the $200,000 Miller Genuine Draft Cradle Stakes, move on to Arlington Park for the Arlington Matron (gr. III) and finally go to Del Mar for the Del Mar Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. II).
