Reserved Travers day picnic tables available this week through NYRA
The New York Racing Association initiated the table reservation option last year as a means to (relatively) control the chaos and raise proceeds for a number of different equine charities.
Beginning today, parties can register for the chance to purchase one of the select reserved picnic tables set aside by NYRA for Travers day.
Registration closes at 6 p.m., on Saturday, August 13. On Sunday, 50 randomly selected applicants will be notified of their selection and then have the option to buy one of the designated tables for $100 each. Tables are set for a maximum of six people per unit.
With lines for the coveted picnic tables in the yard likely to begin well before dawn, NYRA’s reserved table contest doesn’t sound like a bad idea for those hoping to get a few extra hours of shut eye before the big day.
