the park which Naylor said would be one of the finest racing facilities in North Retama one of three class I facilities in the Mark Lyon state and one of four with a class I license has features which include a firstclass dining facility a clubhouse reserved seating simul casting handicapped accessibility box seats and turf and field club night racing and a spe cial quarter horse season in the fall Naylor noted that Retamas entertainment offering will be compara ble with that of a profes sional sports franchise In respect to San Anto nios lack of professional sports franchises you could consider Retama as he said Weve got the Spurs and weve got the minor league Iguanas hockey team and the Missions minor league baseball team Compare that with Dallas which has the Cow boys Ranger and Mavericks and we dont stack up so well Retama will help provide more of that caliber of entertainment for San HeraldZietung photo by MARK LYON John Naylor Retama Park Publicity Manager talks of racetrack

people ranging from parking admissions tellers waiters kitchen staff and stable personnel to a new feature called betting staff mem bers who will aid visitors with questions on how and what to bet A few other features many local horse enthusiasts may be interested in is the April 11 twoyearold training sale resulting from a landmark agreement with Keeneland to hold a sale outside the state of Kentucky something Naylor said is extremely rare Another sale worthy of mention will be the Heritage Place quarter horse sale coming next fall Got a special occasion or want to take a club meeting on the road Retama is ready to help you with a special tent set up located just outside the grandstand complete with food and betting terminals Several weeks into the season this year the park will begin
