Day at the Races Next Saturday

Arkansas Tech University alumni and friends still have time to purchase tickets for the third annual “Day at the Races,” which is set for next Saturday at Oaklawn Racing and Gaming in Hot Springs.

Tickets to attend the event may be purchased through the Arkansas Tech University Alumni Office or by calling 479-968-0242.  The cost is $7, which includes general admission and reserved grandstand seating through Saturday’s races.

The fifth race of the day will honor Arkansas Tech alumni and friends, as it is named the Arkansas Tech Alumni Classic.

Angela Bonds, director of alumni relations, says she hopes lots of Tech graduates make the trip to the Spa City to connect with other graduates, and Bonds says the idea for hosting a day at the races came from two Arkansas Tech graduates.
