This would have been it… The end of our race meet, at The Raceway, would have concluded with our signature event - the Camluck Classic - on Friday, May 29…

With our race meet ending, back in mid-March, due to the pandemic - I could be a little rusty, but I’m in to go - for a pair of race calls on some virtual harness racing action this weekend.

Hope you can join us!

The U.S. Trotting Association, in conjunction with Off And Pacing, continues their series of simulated stakes races on Friday (May 29) with the virtual Camluck Classic from The Raceway at Western Fair District.

The Camluck Classic, originally scheduled to take place on Friday (May 29), was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The return of horses behind the starting gate will bring renewed excitement to the Ontario racing industry this weekend. Although, it will also be bittersweet, as this was to be the weekend of the Camluck Classic, presented by Seelster Farms - the annual Closing Night event at The Raceway at Western Fair District.

The event has been cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, however, COSA TV will pay tribute to the longstanding event during its ‘Facebook Live’ broadcast this coming Sunday night…
