Breeders' Cup and Horse Racing Simulation LLC Announce Racing's First Live On-Track Virtual Jockey Promotional Contest

Fans to apply in person at Santa Anita Park for Breeders' Cup World Championships, November 6-7.

Arcadia, CA (PRWEB) November 2, 2009 -- Attending the Breeders' Cup World Championships has always been special for both the real horse racing enthusiast and the more casual racing fan. Each year, the Breeders' Cup tries to enhance the horse racing fan's experience by providing more opportunities for fans to become deeply involved in racing's most prestigious event. This year, Breeders' Cup and the Oak Tree Racing Association are offering a fun and engaging virtual jockey experience for real prizes. All fans attending the 2009 Breeders' Cup World Championships, Friday, November 6, and Saturday, November 7, at Santa Anita Park are invited to participate in this virtual jockey contest.

Horse Racing Simulation's state-of-the-art horse racing software program allows fans the opportunity to ride their favorite 2009 Breeders' Cup Classic contender in full-3D on 41-inch plasma screens. Over 100 of each contender's traits and attributes are replicated to provide the most realistic simulation of this premier event possible. Trophies will be awarded on both Friday and Saturday for the fans winning with the fastest race times.

"Giving the fans the opportunity to interact with top champions in a way never done before at any horse racing venue, let alone the prestigious Breeders' Cup Championships, is definitely exciting, " said Mike Calderone, CEO of Horse Racing Simulation. "The more engaged the fans are in every aspect, the better it is for the sport of horse racing in general, and we're excited that Breeders' Cup Ltd feels the same way."

"Providing the best two days in racing is what the Championships are all about, and anything we can do to further enhance a fan's experience at the track is important to us. We expect the fans to really enjoy this fun, entertaining addition to our event. We look at it as entertaining and educational, as well," said Peter Rotondo, Breeders' Cup Vice President of Media and Entertainment.

The Breeders' Cup Virtual Jockey Challenge will take place in the breezeway south of the Kingsbury Fountain on the grandstand side between the paddock and racetrack.

Fun filled day

Sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I coild be there. Actually, I could have, but had other vacation plans, which didn't materialize. It would have been fun to meet puddles, derbyugirl and everybody associated with game. Maybe someday.
I was thinking, a t-shirt with a picture of my best horse, Royal Danish, with his name and my user name, soundofrum. Sound Of Rum was a race horse many years ago. Just a claimer.
