RUS Invitational Coming to The Hawk - Yonkers Trot Bids Accepted

On Saturday, September 26, 2015, at Mohawk Racetrack, there will be a special racing under saddle event, The Harlquin (an RUS Invitational).  Not only will the race feature a field of invited trotters, a couple of riders from Europe, Philip Masschaele (France) and Stephanie Werder (Sweden) will be competing along with some American riders (specific riders to be determined).

Mark your calendars and join in the fun.
