Breakfast at the Wire – where fans can enjoy a leisurely breakfast while watching Thoroughbreds train – returns for a fifth straight year beginning July 7 and continuing every Saturday through Aug. 25.

Sponsored by Toscanos Italian Grill, Breakfast at the Wire is located just past the finish line in front of the Trackside Deli – a perfect vantage point to enjoy breakfast while viewing the nearly 1,000 Thoroughbreds currently training at Emerald Downs.

Breakfast at the Wire runs from 8 to 10 a.m. with entry via the Paddock Gate. The $7 price includes free parking and entry to the track, and a breakfast choice of scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns, or scrambled eggs with biscuits and gravy along with giant cinnamon rolls and gourmet coffee from Rad Roasting Company.

Hosted by Dean Mazzuca for a fifth straight year, Breakfast at the Wire features prominent guests from all facets of Thoroughbred racing, along with surprise visits from star jockeys and trainers at Emerald Downs. Other guests include veterinarians, stewards, assistant starters, association clockers, farriers, jockeys agents, and many more.

Following the lead of Santa Anita’s Clockers’ Corner, Vicki Potter of Emerald Downs Group Sales has developed Breakfast at the Wire since its inception.

“Our purpose is to give fans and newcomers the opportunity to understand what happens during morning hours at the track, and to meet and greet our trainers, gallop people, agents, and all the other wonderful people in our sport,” Potter said. “And they can enjoy a great breakfast at the same time.”
