Saturday harness racing at Connell Park

by | Aug 25, 2023

Summer’s events continue with a six-dash card of afternoon racing

Horse Racing New Brunswick will host a six-dash card on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 26, at Connell Park Raceway in Woodstock, starting at 1 p.m.

Saturday’s card will feature a double-dash to see previous horses in earlier races go a half-mile race to finish the race card in race six.

Both the top-class and the double-dash will offer purses of $ 2,500 each for a total of $5,000.

Race five has been locked in as the $2,500 feature that will have a happy group of four pacers, who will all get a cheque.

Day Of Honor (Colin Decourcey) has drawn the favourable post one. Elm Grove Quest will take on the boys from post two for Mark Haig.

Emperor, for Jeff Lewis, and Therealprincess, for Dr. Mitchell Downey, will be rounding out the top class.

Race six will see seven starters from the first three races on the card return to race a half-mile race for $2,500.

Wagering is available through HPI Bet, and if fans can’t make it to Connell Park, a live stream will be available on Universum Media’s channel on YouTube.
