Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races will race 235 days from Jan. 2 through Dec. 28 in 2013.
Similar to the schedule employed by the track in 2012, racing will be conducted Tuesday through Saturday from January through April. Following the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) the first Saturday in May, live racing shifts to a Wednesday through Sunday schedule for May and June and subsequently Thursday through Sunday in July and August. The live calendar reverts back to the Tuesday through Saturday schedule for the final three months of the year.
Post time for the first race on weeknights and Saturday cards will be 7:15 p.m. EST, with Sunday cards getting underway at 1 p.m. The only exceptions to the standard post times will be Charles Town Classic day April 20 and Charles Town Race for the Ribbon day Sept. 21. Both of those events carry a first post of 5 p.m.
The full lineup of 2013 stakes races at Charles Town is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
