The chance to win a finish line view of the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks is being offered to race fans everywhere by one of the country's leading horse trainers, Kenny McPeek. Fans can go to the app website to win two third floor clubhouse seats to the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby races Friday and Saturday, May 2 and 3. The tickets to the clubhouse, undercover and right in front of the finish line, are among the best seats available to view the 'Race for the Lilies' and the 'Run for the Roses.'
All contestants have to do to enter is share news about the contest on social media or via email. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 28, 2014. Horse Races NOW will present the winner with third level clubhouse passes for the Kentucky Oaks race on May 2, and for the Kentucky Derby on May 3.
Contestants can enter once a day between now and April 28. The winners will share the same experience in watching the famed Derby as experienced by the top owners and trainers in the sport.
The Derby/Oaks clubhouse tickets contest is being conducted by McPeek as part of his overall campaign to generate interest in horse racing among sports fans. Part of that campaign includes the introduction earlier this year of the Horse Races NOW app for iPhone and Android platforms.
"Anyone can download Horse Races NOW free and within minutes can be watching live video from 45 tracks in North America," says McPeek.
Users of the Horse Races NOW app have access to more than 45 racetracks in North America and internationally from Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. Live and replay video is available in the palm of the user's hand on iPhones, iPads, iPod touch and Android devices worldwide.
