Over $280,000 in purse money will be on the line on Sunday, Sept. 7, at Scarborough Downs as the track once again plays host to the two-year-old Maine Sire Stakes Championship round with first post slated for 1:05 p.m. (EDT). This season marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of the state-bred program.
Headlining the card will be the undefeated wunderkind, Bibbidi Boo, who will be attempting to cap her freshman career with a perfect ten for ten win record. The prolific winner makes up part of a powerful mutuel entry with her stable mate, divisional track record holder, Pembroke Mistress who herself sports 7 career wins from 10 starts. The tandem, owned by William Varney, has been installed as the prohibitive 4-5 morning line favorite but will be challenged from an unfortunate draw as they will score side by side from posts 7 and 8 respectively.
Sunday will also be Back To The Track Day at Scarborough Downs, featuring an exciting round of Harness Racing Bingo with $500 in prize money distributed to the lucky winners. A free card will be available to all in attendance.
This will be the closing weekend of the 2014 summer meet at the Downs with the fall meet set to commence on October 10th featuring a three day a week schedule of Friday through Sunday with post time slated for 1:05 PM. The Downs will remain open for simulcast wagering throughout the year. (Scarborough)
