Horse Racing Does Halloween.

Looking for some festivities for Halloween?

Then you need to look at the Meadowlands. Last year I could not believe they had festive races, and a stakes at that, for Halloween. The most amazing, for me, was watching The Grey Ghost. I was working nights at that time and was able to pause and enjoy this beautiful race. The night was slightly overcast, bright moon overhead; seeing the all-Grey field race across the track, was very sweet indeed.

So if you are finding yourself in need of some Halloween festivities, then at least watch these fun races.

Here are some articles from the Meadowlands about todays events.

Hunch bet of the day is in the 10th at Churchill, where Haunted Hotel was on the AE list and drew into the main body of the race.

Very cool that they do this kind of stuff at some tracks. That party sounds awesome! Guitar Hero, horses and Halloween fun - what more could you want?

Too bad I'm not anywhere near Meadowlands xD

the grey ghost is always a fun race to watch!

a little off topic...

but do you or any of the bloodhorse staff have any updates on Rags to Riches. Isn't she due to foal soon?

I love the "Gray Ghosts" races at any track!  And when they race in the evening under a full moon, it's even better.  Whoever invented the idea should have gotten a raise!

Why not have a theme for other holidays?

4th of July - horses with flag or freedom or liberty, etc., in their names, and even better with red, white and blue colors!

Christmas - elves, presents, winter!

Memorial Day or Veterans Day - soldiers, fighting, courage (Colonel John could run anywhere!).

You could do the same with Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, etc.

I agree that racing could capitalize on things like this - it's fun and fans would love it.
