Watch the Game on TV at noon; stay for racing at 3:20 p.m.

The first long, holiday weekend of live racing at Hastings Racecourse & Slots now includes our Vancouver Canucks and their exciting journey through the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs.

With the fourth game of the Western Conference Championship Final between the Canucks and Sharks set for San Jose at noon on Sunday, May 22, first post at Hastings Racecourse has been adjusted to 3:20 p.m. in order that hockey fans and racing fans can enjoy the best of both worlds.

With hundreds of televisions on the grounds, covering all levels of Hastings Raceourse & Slots, track management has come up with Game Specials that include food & beverage features in Silks Restaurant, the Eclipse Lounge, and Jerome’s. Also, fans wearing anything Canucks can enter a drawing for a Hastings Race Track Experience for four.

The Holiday Weekend kicks off with Saturday’s 1:20 p.m. card highlighted by the $50,000 Senate Appointee Stakes. Sunday’s 3:20 p.m. card will be part of the big day with the Canucks, and Monday’s Victoria Day program begins at 1:20 p.m., with the feature being the $50,000 John Longden 6000 Stakes.
