Dear THOROUGHBREDS Member:
As a special thank you we would like to offer a free upgrade reserved seat to the first 1,000 THOROUGHBREDS attending the 2012 Breeders' Cup Friday, courtesy of Santa Anita Park.
Simply pay General Admission on Friday ($15) and go to the Main THOROUGHBREDS Center to receive your free upgrade reserved grandstand seat, while supplies last. Come early as these seats are expected to go fast!
This offer is valid on Breeders' Cup Friday (November 2) only.

So the greedy s at Breeders' Cup Ltd. want to think their event is the SUPER BOWL of horse racing.
They dilute their product and spread the races out over 2 days..so you get MAIDEN'S winning Breeders' Cup races, like today.
Today's estimated attendance count by some is 20,000 -25,000.
Here's a picture from today of a section of the $250 "free seats" they were giving away.:

Those who actually paid money for seats should be just a tad pissed off..
Lets see if Fravel can do the right thing next year and return it back to the wonderful ONE DAY event, the way Mr. Gaines intended it to be..
