Horseplay Car Giveaway

May 6, 2022 through October 1, 2022

Promotion Date & Time:

Every Friday & Saturday during live racing beginning May 6, 2022

2022 Toyota Corolla grand prize vehicle giveaway on Saturday, October 1, 2022

Participation Method:

Guests 18 years and older may purchase rubber horses every Friday and Saturday, during live racing, at the track beginning on Friday, May 6, 2022, for only $1.00 each. Following Race 5 on promotion days, participating guests will be asked to throw their horses at the starter’s truck as it makes its way in front of the track apron. Attached to the truck will be a bucket, all horses that make it into the bucket will be eligible for that evening’s four prizes and four qualifier spots for the final car giveaway on Saturday, October 1, 2022.

Regular Promotion Details:

Upon purchasing rubber horses, participating guests will be assigned numbers that are preprinted on each horse they purchase to participate in the promotion. There will be no limit to the number of rubber horses a person may purchase each day.

On each promotional day following Race 5 at the track, the starter’s truck will drive around the track (in front of the track apron) with a bucket attached on it, all participating guests that purchased a rubber horse that evening will be asked to throw their horses and attempt to land them inside the bucket. Once the vehicle has completed its drive, any horses that did not make it into the bucket will be collected and used for future promotional days. The bucket with all the horses that were thrown into it will be brought to the Promotions Desk. From the rubber horses that successfully landed in the bucket, four winners will be drawn. Each horse will then be verified against the log outlining who the participating guest was that purchased the horse. Guests may only win once per promotional day. Should there be a duplicate winner, another horse will be drawn, and this will occur until there are four individual winners on any given promotional day.

The four winners drawn each night will win a $40 racing voucher and a qualifier invitation for the grand prize vehicle giveaway on 10/1/22.  Only the four winners chosen during each promotion night in the Horseplay Car Giveaway will be qualified for a chance to win the grand prize on 10/1/22.

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, there will be one final qualifying drawing that will take place following Race 2. The same process outlined above will take place and those final four winners will all have an opportunity to win the 2022 Toyota Corolla that night.

Should there be any cancellation of race days due to inclement weather, lack of entries, or for any other reason, the promotion for that date may be moved to another race day or cancelled and not moved at management’s discretion.

Announcement of Winners/Prize Claim during regular promotion days:

Once four individual winners have been determined from the rubber horses on a promotion night, the winners will be announced and will have five (5) minutes to report to the promotions desk to be verified and to receive their prize and qualification invitation to the grand prize vehicle giveaway on 10/1/22. An acceptable form of valid ID is required to be verified and completion of necessary winner’s paperwork is required to claim their prize. If any winner fails to report within the 5-minute timeframe or they cannot or refuse to provide valid identification, they will forfeit their prize, and another winner will not be chosen in their place. Guests may only win once each promotion day.

Grand Prize Drawing Specifics:

On 10/1/22, all qualified winners from the previous promotional days must return to the Vernon Downs track to participate in the grand prize giveaway. Each qualified winner will receive one entry ticket for each drawing they won during the regular promotion. *Guests may only win once per promotional day but may win on separate promotional days thereby earning themselves more qualifying entries for the final grand prize drawing.

Qualified winners will have from 4pm until the conclusion of Race 4 on 10/1/22 to check in at the track Promotions Desk to claim and have their entry tickets entered into the drawing drum for the grand prize giveaway.  At the conclusion of Race 5, five winning tickets will be drawn. Guests that qualified for the grand prize drawing may only win one prize during the grand prize drawing. Should there be a duplicate winner drawn as part of the five winning tickets, another ticket will be drawn, and this will occur until there are five individual winners that have a chance to win the vehicle.  The five individual winners will then be announced and given five (5) minutes to report to the Promotions Desk with an acceptable form of valid identification to be verified. If any winner fails to report within the 5-minute timeframe or they cannot or refuse to provide valid identification, they will forfeit their opportunity to participate, and another winner will be chosen and announced until we have five individual, verified winners.

Once all five winners have been verified, they will participate in a lucky case game to determine their final prize. Four cases will have cash prize amounts of either $100, $200, $300, or $400 and one case will say 2022 TOYOTA COROLLA. In the order the winners were drawn, one at a time, they will select a case number which will be opened to reveal their prize.

The winner of the vehicle will be given information to set up an appointment with Williams Toyota to complete and finalize any necessary paperwork associated with winning the 2022 Toyota Corolla.

Should the grand prize drawing be delayed due to track closure as a result of inclement weather, it will be moved to the next possible race day on the schedule and an announcement will be posted on the Vernon Downs social media pages and website.

Promotion Date & Time:

Friday, August 19 & Saturday, August 20, 2022

Free Corn Giveaway:

On Friday 8/19 and Saturday 8/20/22 we will be giving away free ears of corn to racing fans aged 18 and older. Fans may claim one half-dozen ears of fresh corn following Race 6 on both evenings at the booth on the track apron. Racing fans are limited to one half-dozen per person on both Friday and Saturday. There will be 200 half-dozen ears available each day while supplies last.

Corn Tossing Contest:

On Friday 8/19 we will have a Corn Tossing Contest for all Vernon Rewards members (aged 18 and older) from 5pm to 7pm on the track apron. Members are allowed to participate once in the contest and will be checked in upon participating. As members participate, they will receive ten ears of corn in which they will throw/toss once at a time at a target with five available spaces. The participant must try to land as many ears of corn as possible into any of the targets. Once all ten of their ears of corn have been thrown the score will be logged down. Scores will be tallied based on how many ears of corn are landed in the particular targets. Any ear landing in the targets on the four corners are worth 2 points and any in the center target are worth 3 points each. Logged with the total accumulated score will also be the number of ears made into any target (as a tie breaker).

At the end of the tossing contest scores will be sorted from top to bottom and the top 5 scores will qualify for prizes in the following amounts:

1st place = $250 wagering voucher

2nd place = $150 wagering voucher

3rd place = $100 wagering voucher

4th place = $50 wagering voucher

5th place = $25 wagering voucher

Should there be a tie for any of the places, the tie will be broken based on the number of ears landed in targets. Should there still be a tie, a corn cob toss-off will take place between those that are tied to determine the finishing order.

 Corn Eating Contest:

On Saturday 8/20 we will hold a corn eating contest following Race 3. Vernon Rewards members (aged 18 and older) may register to participate in the contest beginning at 5pm at the track promotions desk. Registration may be limited based upon number of guests interested in participating.

Following Race 3 all registered participants will be announced to come to the contest area within 5 minutes to take their seats. Once all participants have taken their seat or five minutes has elapsed, the rules will be announced, and the contest will begin. Participants will eat as many steamed ears of corn they can in five minutes. The judge of the contest will determine a person’s qualifying completed ears of corn at the end of the contest. Should any participant not hold down their consumed corn through the five minutes, they will be disqualified.

1st place = $250 wagering voucher
