GENERAL CONSENSUS: GOLD RUSH WEEKEND A SUCCESS

Just days after completing its inaugural Gold Rush Weekend on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28, Golden Gate Fields track officials deemed the event a successful beginning to an annual tradition that is expected to continue for years to come.

"Just an outstanding 48 hours," reflected Golden Gate Fields General Manager and Vice President David Duggan. "Our fans, owners, horseplayers and horsemen have given us very positive feedback. Our numbers were very strong. Both days produced solid on-track crowds that were festive and exuberant. Our wagering product was fantastic and horseplayers were able to dive into competitive sequences with large pools. We are extremely pleased with how the inaugural Gold Rush Weekend went."
