Entries open July 6 for August 23-24 for Coast-to-Coast Travel/Clothing/Betting Horseracing Package

LEXINGTON, Ky., July 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder what it's like to be a highflying Thoroughbred jockey, riding in a marquee race one day, then jetting across the country for a second  major stakes event the next afternoon?

The "Ultimate 48" sweepstakes announced today by America's Best Racing won't make you crouch just inches above the back of a 1,200-pound equine athlete careening at 40 miles per hour. Instead, the thrill-seeking winner and three friends of this first-ever VIP horseracing adventure will experience their 48-hour adrenaline high via round-trip airfare from anywhere in the country, limousine transportation, luxury hotel accommodations and clubhouse seating to watch the country's top horses compete at two of Thoroughbred horseracing's elite summer events – the Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course in Upstate New York Aug. 23, and the Pacific Classic at Del Mar Turf Club in Southern California Aug. 24. The prize package includes clothing and $1,000 in cash for betting on the races.

"The Ultimate 48 is about enjoying the sport of kings as if you were at the top of your game," said Kip Cornett with America's Best Racing. "Long-time as well as new racing fans alike will experience a whirlwind weekend visiting two of the country's most famous Thoroughbred racing venues, while sporting a new wardrobe and betting with someone else's funds."

The 145th running of the "mid-summer Derby" known as Travers, with its $1.25 million purse, is the highlight of the summer race meeting at Saratoga.  Del Mar's richest race with a purse of $1 million purse, is the Pacific Classic, the anchor race for a stakes triple header and part of the Breeder's Cup Challenge.
