Bring your family and join other Blue Hens for a picnic at the races!

In addition to the admission and buffet, our alums and their guests who are over 21 will receive a guide explaining the betting process and two drink tickets. Some lucky spectators will get to experience the race trackside and take a photo with the winning horse!

With the help of the UD Alumni Association, we're able to offer this event at a discounted rate. Tickets are limited.
