Minneapolis, Minnesota--Southwest Casino Corporation announced today that Running Aces Harness Park, in which Southwest Casino Corporation owns a 50 percent membership interest, opened to a capacity crowd on April 11, 2008 and has completed its first three days of live harness racing. After an afternoon ribbon cutting ceremony, racing at Running Aces began shortly after 6:00 p.m. on Friday with Valentine Hotspur winning the inaugural race. Eight live races were completed daily on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoon. Eight more races are scheduled for this evening with an initial 6:00 post time. Running Aces Harness Park offers live racing with pari-mutuel betting on a 5/8-mile harness racing track. During 2008, Running Aces will hold live racing from April 11 to July 6 on Friday, Saturday and Monday nights starting at 6:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoons starting at 3:00, as well as two Tuesday nights in June. In addition to live races, Running Aces offers simulcast wagering on harness races from other tracks and a full service restaurant and bar open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Running Aces will also operate a card room with 50 gaming tables offering non-banked casino card games and live poker once it completes 50 days of live harness racing.

Jim Druck, CEO of Southwest Casino Corporation, said, "It was very exciting to finally begin racing at Running Aces. Notwithstanding the cold, blustery Minnesota weather we opened to a capacity crowd. I was thrilled by the large crowds this weekend and the excitement generated by the races. I was also extremely pleased with our guests' response to the quality of our food and with the customer service provided by our newly-trained staff. We are happy to have completed the first three of the 50 live racing days required before we can open our card room and look forward to another big opening event in July." the source
