The first-ever Camluck Classic is now just over a month away at The Raceway at Western Fair District, and there will be some new twists to the London, Ont. oval’s signature event.

In addition to the new race name and new date of Saturday, May 26, the event will feature a new Infield VIP Experience as part of the fun where fans will enjoy a unique view of the action from inside a 4,000 square foot tent located in the track’s infield.

“The infield experience is something we are very excited to offer for the first time,” said The Raceway at Western Fair District Marketing Co-ordinator Amy O’Toole. “Customers will be able to enjoy all the amenities of those on the front side while experiencing the event in a unique and exciting way.”

A limited number of tickets will be sold at a cost of $50 (tax included) and will include preferred parking (in the infield), free program, $2 betting voucher, BBQ chicken dinner, dedicated video board, cash bar, exclusive draws, D.J. and photo booth.

Tickets will go on sale online this Friday (April 20). In addition, a Facebook ‘beat the box office’ contest will open today (Tuesday, April 17) at 2:30 p.m. where you will have a chance to win a set of two tickets to the infield experience on Camluck Classic night.

The Facebook platform will also be used this year for another first-time endeavour. The Raceway at Western Fair District will team up with Woodbine Entertainment and Standardbred Canada to broadcast the Camluck Classic on Facebook Live. Coverage will begin at 10:30 p.m. (ET).

Woodbine’s award-winning broadcast team will be on hand to produce the one-hour show that will be distributed on the Facebook pages of both Woodbine Entertainment and The Raceway at Western Fair District. Standardbred Canada will bring its massive online reach to the partnership and will offer enhanced distribution of the telecast as well.

Woodbine teamed up with the Breeders’ Cup for a Facebook Live broadcast of a ‘Win and You’re In’ race last season that was very successful. They have a number of events scheduled throughout this racing season.

More details surrounding the Camluck Classic will be announced in the coming days. To stay connected, click here.
