The nomination deadline is rapidly approaching for the first three out of nine total annual "Lebanon Legends" late closers to be raced at Miami Valley Raceway, primarily in March and early April. Entry forms must be submitted to the race office or postmarked by Saturday, Feb. 17. All three series are for non-winners of four pari-mutuel races or $40,000 lifetime as of the entry deadline date.
The Herb Coven Jr. Memorial will feature pacing fillies and mares; the George Williams Memorial will showcase male pacers; and the Ray Paver Sr. Memorial is for trotters that meet the conditions criteria.
"Due to the unfortunate current quarantine of almost 500 horses at the Warren Co. Fairgrounds and a nearby training center, we expect lower nomination numbers than usual for these popular series," said Race Secretary Gregg Keidel. "We still hope to get the required 18 available nominees to begin each series, however additionally, owners of horses currently in quarantine are welcome to nominate and their checks will not be cashed if they are not released from quarantine in time to enter the first leg."
Deadline for entries into the other six "Legends" series, for either non-winners of 2 pari-mutuel races or $20,000 lifetime; or non-winners of 6 pari-mutuel races or $60,000 lifetime is March 3.
