The Countdown to Back at the Track

Today, kicks off the countdown to Back at the Track which will occur Friday through Sunday this weekend.  For today's countdown, I would like to let you know that visitors to the Meadowlands (Paddock Park), Tioga Downs, and Yonkers Raceway should look out for the Standardbred Retirement Foundation.  They will be at those tracks collecting funds for their program which includes maintaining many hores under their care.  Whether you donate a few dollars or perhaps part of a big ticket to SRF, it would be appreciated.

As for big races this weekend, off course there is the Meadowlands Pace on Saturday night, but there are other great races this weekend. 

Friday, July 15
Meadowlands - Delvin Memorial (3yo filly trot)
Tioga Downs - Tompkins-Geers (2yo and 3yo filly paces)

Saturday, July 16
Balmoral Park - Hanover Stakes
Hoosier Park - INSS Finals
Meadowlands - Stanley Dancer Memorial (3yo Open Trot); Meadowlands Pace (3yo Open Pace); NJSS 2yo Championships; Tarport Hap (3yo Filly Pace)
Pocono Downs - PASS (3yo C&G Trot)

Sunday, July 17

In my opinion another lame Back to the Track promotion. As someone who goes to the track on a consistent basis if it was not for The Tompkins Geers on Sunday at Tioga I wouldn't bother. Nothing entices me. Actually , I would love to go up to Buffalo Raceway on Back to the Track day unfortunately they have it on a Sat. night and not Sun. afternoon. Sorry, 7 hour round trip does not equate at night.
If I’m ho hum about going to the track that says a lot to me. If you have a degenerate harness racing fan yawning, there’s a problem. There’s always part 3 next year???
