Fonner Files: Fans From Near And Far At Fonner Park

Fonner Park CEO Chris Kotulak shares slices of life from the Grand Island, Neb., racetrack throughout the 2021 meet in the Fonner Files.

Today, we shipped off three golf shirts and caps to Delaware from someone who says he just doesn’t want to see Fonner end again.

Who buys logo gear from a track they’ve never been to – a track that really doesn’t have a gift shop? Who? Fans! That’s who.

Countless times we have taken calls from folks who want something “Fonner.” This happened last year when there were slim options due to the pandemic, but we’re doing it on our own now. And we couldn’t do it without you – the fans.

Three guys named Mike drove 13 hours from Shreveport, La., for a weekend at Fon. Another came from Chicago, just for one day.

But, thus far, the 2021 “Fon Super Fan” award goes to Pete Aiello Sr. – yes, father of the Pete Aiello who is on the horns at Gulfstream Park.

Papa Pete came to Fon simply to add to his list of now 96 parimutuel racetracks (dog and horse) he has visited. Pete flew from his home in South Florida and says he plans to return, even though he now has officially notched Fon on his belt.

Our season ends on Kentucky Derby day. We hope to see you next season. What’s your shirt size?
