COBRA (Colorado Owners & Breeders of Racing Arabians) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of the Arabian Race Horse. As a whole, Arabian racing is a growing industry that has not yet gained the popularity and recognition that other racing breeds, such as Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses, have attained. We want to change this by bringing Arabian racing into the spotlight at every opportunity....more!

Arapahoe Park to Air Two Television Shows on Altitude During Season:
by Jonathan Horowitz

Arapahoe Park will broadcast a new feature television show about the behind-the-scenes of horse racing and a replay show on the Denver-based network Altitude Sports & Entertainment during the 2015 live horse racing season at the Aurora, Colorado racetrack.  Hosted by Arapahoe Park announcer Jonathan Horowitz, “Gates Open at Arapahoe Park” will air on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. and rebroadcast on Fridays at 10 a.m. with a focus on feature stories and profiles of horses and horsemen.  The replay show, “Today at Arapahoe Park,” will air at 10 p.m. after each day’s races and rebroadcast the following morning at 10 a.m.  The 2015 season of Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, and Arabian racing at Arapahoe Park will go from May 22 to August 16, with the first “Gates Open at Arapahoe Park” feature show airing on May 21.

In addition to featuring horse racing and its personalities, Arapahoe Park will team up with organizations such as CANTER Colorado for the feature show to promote the journey of horses after they finish their racing career.

“Our television shows are going to be a way for us to share horse racing’s vibrancy and excitement to a wider audience,” said Arapahoe Park General Manager Bruce Seymore.  “There are so many amazing stories at Arapahoe Park that we want to tell.”

For the first time ever, Arapahoe Park will film its races in HD for the television shows.  Altitude Sports & Entertainment, available in more than 3 million homes in 10 states, is the most-watched regional sports network in the Rocky Mountain region.

 

NEW STAKES RACE TO BE ADDED!
by Lori Long

COBRA would like to thank Garret Ford for his sponsorship of the Easy Care Altitude Stakes! This added overnight stakes race will be the prep race for the Classic Stakes at the end of the meet and should have an estimated purse of $13,500. It will be an open race and handicapped.

Race-Day Medication-Free Incentive to Continue!
by Jonathan Horowitz

Arapahoe Park will reward horsemen who do not administer race-day medication to their horses with the creation of the Race-Day Medication-Free Incentive.  Trainers who win a race with a horse void of any race-day medication will receive a $1,000 bonus per victory to be paid from a special fund created by Arapahoe Park.

Race-Day Medication-Free Incentive is being launched to encourage trainers to go beyond the letter of the law that permits only Lasix, phenylbutazone (“bute”), flunixin, and ketoprofen on race day in Colorado.

“The future of racing is going to be race-day medication-free, and we at Arapahoe Park want to be ahead of the curve,” said Bruce Seymore, Executive Director of Mile High Racing and Entertainment, the parent company of Arapahoe Park.  “We in Colorado already have one of the strictest testing procedures in the country.  This new Race-Day Medication-Free Incentive allows us to continue to improve our standards.”

Trainers must be stabled at Arapahoe Park for the entire meet to be eligible for the bonuses.  The bonuses will be paid out at the end of the season.
