Darren Dunn, CEO of the Manitoba Jockey Club, wants to let supporters know he appreciates their continued support for the industry and for Assiniboia Downs:
"As Assiniboia Downs has pursued legal remedies against a government intent on changing the way the track is run, we have been touched by the strong support from people throughout the province. Everywhere I go, people want to shake my hand and wish us well.

"So, as we conclude the 56th season of live racing, the least Assiniboia Downs can do in thanks is to offer you mega-perks as part of our annual fan appreciation days that happen Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In addition to discounts on programs, food and merchandise and a discount on a $6 combo on Sunday, if you have a Player Rewards card, you will get 5,000 points added to it -- just like that. (Present it at the Player Rewards table on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.) And, if you don't have a card, you'll be given 2,500 points as you arrive on one of those days. Each 1,000 points has an approximate value of $5.

"So thank you for being such big boosters. And the future? We're very positive and you make us stronger!"
