Cal Expo plans series to honor late legends
« Return to News
Watch and Wager LLC plans to honor many of the legendary figures of California harness racing with an extensive series of late closing events at their upcoming 2013/2014 fall-winter meeting at Cal Expo. The trotters and pacers return on October 5 and will race through May 17.
Among the highlights are the Annette Funnicello pacing series starting on October 12; the Dr, Gary Budahn Trotting series and Lonnie Beck Pacing series, which begin on December 27 and 28, respectively; the Alan Kirschenbaum pacing series that is set to get underway on February 7; the Stan Bergstein Trotting series on March 21 and the Lloyd Arnold Pacing series on March 22.
The California Harness Horseman's Association, in partnership with Watch and Wager LLC, is pleased to offer a new horse incentive program for the meeting. Under the program, each new horse will receive $1,000 in bonus money upon making its first start, with a new horse being defined as a trotter or pacer that has not started at Cal Expo since June 14, 2012.
Plenty of stalls are still available with no stall rent. For the list of California Harness Legends late closing events; complete new horse incentive rules; stall applications and purse schedule, please go to http://www.calxharness.com/ or contact us at email@example.com (Cal Expo)
