Lone Star Park: Countdown to Claussen


Martha Claussen, a Q-Racing Ace with the fan education arm of the American Quarter Horse Association, will make an appearance at Lone Star Park on Saturday night. The track has two major stakes on the card, the Grade 1, $414,045 Dash for Cash Futurity and the Grade 2, $153,000 Dash for Cash Derby.

Claussen will lead a handicapping seminar that begins at 5:30 p.m. Central. It will be held on the first floor of the grandstand, and she will be joined by Lone Star Park handicapper Rick Lee. Following the half-hour session, Claussen and Lee will be available to answer questions about racing. Claussen will also be handing out $2 betting vouchers while supplies last Saturday.

Post for the first race is 6:35 p.m. Central.

Claussen travels to different Quarter Horse meets around the country as part of her fan education work with the AQHA.
