NATIONAL PICK THREE WAGER TO BE OFFERED IN CONJUNCTION WITH "NTRA SUMMER RACING TOUR ON CBS" TELECASTS

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) today announced the creation of a new, national pick three wager-the NTRA Summer Pick Three-that will be offered to coincide with each of the three telecasts comprising this year's "NTRA Summer Racing Tour on CBS" series.

Minimum wager for the NTRA Summer Pick Three wager will be $2.00, with $1.00 part wheels available. Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie will serve as the wagering hub for the June 15 NTRA Summer Pick Three, with Monmouth Park serving as the wagering hub for the final two offerings on June 29 and July 6. Airtime for all three CBS shows is 5:00-6:00 p.m. (ET) (See complete schedule below.)

"This represents an initial effort by the NTRA to link our television inventory with our wagering product," said Ken Kirchner, senior vice president of product development for the NTRA. "We think this new bet will help to drive viewership to the CBS Sports telecasts and also offer an attractive wagering opportunity that can generate incremental handle on an array of outstanding stakes races. With the increased availability of account wagering, the link between television and wagering needs to be strengthened."

The "NTRA Summer Racing Tour on CBS," presented by Long John Silver's, will showcase important races on the Road to the World Thoroughbred Championships, familiarizing fans with both the American and international stars likely to run in the World Thoroughbred Championships. In addition to presenting live races from Belmont Park, Churchill Downs, Hollywood Park, Arlington Park, Monmouth Park and Lone Star Park, the Tour will offer coverage of nine top races on the International Road to the World Thoroughbred Championships, including events from England's Ascot Racecourse and The Curragh in Ireland, as well as races from Hong Kong and Singapore.

The races comprising the NTRA Summer Pick Three wager for each of the "NTRA Summer Racing Tour on CBS" airdates are as follows (all times Eastern):

June 15: Dallas Turf Cup (Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie-scheduled post time: 5:10 p.m.), Hollywood Breeders' Cup Oaks (Hollywood Park-5:24 p.m.), Stephen Foster Handicap (Churchill Downs-5:42 p.m.)

June 29: Molly Pitcher Handicap (Monmouth Park), Mother Goose Stakes (Belmont Park), Arlington Classic (Arlington Park)

July 6: United Nations Handicap (Monmouth Park). Suburban Handicap (Belmont Park), Stars & Stripes Breeders' Cup Handicap (Arlington Park)

The NTRA is a broad-based coalition of horseracing interests, including the American Quarter Horse Association, charged with increasing popularity of horseracing and improving economic conditions for industry participants. The NTRA and Breeders' Cup Limited also conduct the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships, Thoroughbred racing's year-end Championships consisting of eight races and $13 million in purses and awards, the Breeders' Cup Stakes Program and the Great State Challenge. The NTRA has offices in Lexington, Ky., and New York City. NTRA press releases appear on the NTRA Web site, NTRA.com.
