Owner For An Evening

Owner For An Evening

Imagine what it must be like to own a magnificent racehorse and know the thrill of watching your horse moving up along the rail on its way to the finish line. Well, imagine no more. In partnership with Harness Racing PEI at the Charlottetown Driving Park and Entertainment Centre, we can make you an Owner for an Evening. You'll be greeted by your personal host at the entrance to the Driving Park and Entertainment Centre and taken for a tour of the grandstand which features a 30 foot high diorama depicting the history of harness racing on Prince Edward Island. Your host will delight you with stories about great horses and colourful drivers who've competed over the years for the coveted Gold Cup and Saucer. After you've visited the paddock area and been introduced to your horse where you can talk to your trainer and discuss race strategy, your host will take you back up into the grandstand to the fabulous dining room. While you savour one of the Island's most incredible buffet dinners, your host will show you how to read a racing program, how to place a wager... and if your horse wins its race, you'll go down to the Winner's Circle to have your picture taken with your horse and driver!

My companion, my daughter and I took part in the Meet the Neighbors experience this past August. Not only was it a whole lot of fun and highly informative but it gave us an opportunity to spend time with Prince Edward Islanders in their working environment - a rare priveledge for a tourist!
