October Races Pass Muster In Atlantic City Assembly

Posted: Jun. 27th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

A six furlong races has just been approved by the state Assembly, set to celebrate Columbus Day at the beach in Atlantic City. Certainly a unique experience and one that promises not only the worlds finest horse-racing snapshots to come, but to serve as a memorable and entertaining event for all, the three day Columbus Day horse races will kick off on October 11th.

A plan to allow a special horse race on Atlantic City's beach as part of the resort's Columbus Day celebration was unanimously approved Monday by the state Assembly.

The bill, co-sponsored by Assemblyman John Amodeo, R-Atlantic, would grant a special permit to any existing race track in New Jersey to hold the race on the beach, with the event intended to draw crowds to watch the spectacle.

The race would be 6 furlongs, or three quarters of a mile, with organizers most looking at the stretch of sand that starts near the Tropicana Casino and Resort and ends in front of Boardwalk Hall.
