Plenty In Store On Father's Day At Buffalo Raceway

by Brian J. Mazurek, for Buffalo Raceway

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Sunday afternoon racing begins this week (June 18) at Buffalo Raceway and the track will have plenty of things going on to celebrate Father's Day.

The 75th Anniversary Buffalo Raceway exacta coin returns by popular demand. Fans will receive an exacta combination on the back of the coin and if it comes in during races two through nine, lucky customers will get to spin the wheel for free wagers. Should the 7-5 combination come in, patrons holding the winning combo will get double the amount in bets from their spin. Everyone will also receive $10 in free play at Hamburg Gaming.

There's plenty for the children as well. Kids in attendance will receive a free Buffalo Raceway 'slinky' and will be treated free cotton candy and sno cones which will be served on the track apron.

The track side grill will also be open serving hot dogs and hamburgers along with cold soda.

As always, admission and parking are free.

There's a 12-race card scheduled with first post scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
