Turf Paradise to have twilight Friday cards


Turf Paradise will begin a series of five Friday twilight racing cards beginning April 2. The programs, which will begin at 3 p.m., are also slated for April 9, 16, 23, and 30.

"We've wanted to try this for a while as a way of attracting a new market of fans to horse racing," said the track's president and general manager, Eugene Joyce. "The Fridays of April are the perfect time."

The Turf Paradise meet runs through May 2.
