The Fair Grounds Racing Club presented a check in the amount of $32,800 to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles Cancer Center Thursday after Excitations won the third race of the day at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots. The donation is the first from the club, and all purse earnings are directed to the charity.
The Fair Grounds Racing Club’s two horses, Excitations and Efforting, have each started at the 145th Thoroughbred Racing Season’s current meet. Excitations crossed the wire a game second in his first lifetime start before his victory Thursday, and Efforting finished second in her career debut last week.
The Fair Grounds Racing Club offers 200 people a chance to experience the thrills of Thoroughbred racing as an owner. Memberships in the Fair Grounds Racing Club are available for $500 and incur no further expense throughout the club. The one-time annual membership dues are used to purchase the horses and pay for training fees and other associated expenses. The club gives members an opportunity to learn about the exciting opportunities as a Thoroughbred racing owner with complete transparency regarding all facets of ownership.
Perks of being a club member include regular updates on the program via email and a dedicated Facebook page, special club events for viewing certain morning workouts, privileged access to the paddock before the club’s horses race, special accommodations on race day and exclusive members-only events.
The Fair Grounds Racing Club has been organized as a 501(c)(7) Not for Profit Social Club and is structured as an educational association meaning members should not join with any profit motive or expectation of profit. All decisions on the club’s horses will be made by trainer Al Stall, Jr. Gary Palmisano, Jr. is the club’s director.
