Batavia, NY — What was originally an unscheduled night of racing, Saturday (Oct. 13) has now become the earliest post time of the meet for Batavia Downs. Due to a concert previously scheduled, Saturday’s nine-race card will kick off at 4:15 p.m.
Racing gates open at 2:45 p.m. and the clubhouse will be open at 3:15 p.m.
There will also be a special menu in the clubhouse on Saturday. A Texas-style barbeque is being offered that will feature barbeque pulled pork, bone-in chicken, roasted red potatoes, mac-n-cheese, butter basted corn, rolls, coffee, tea or soda and all for only $16.95. And everyone purchasing the buffet will receive $15 back in free play for the gaming floor. This offer is good from 3:15 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. and reservations are suggested.
After the live racing card concludes, Kiss This, the east coast’s premier Kiss tribute band, will play a full-costumed concert in the Paddock Room starting at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are only $10 and are available at www.bataviaconcerts.com or at Lucky Treasures Gift Shop right at Batavia Downs Gaming.
