After a two-week hiatus, Horse Racing New Brunswick is back in action on Saturday afternoon at Exhibition Park Raceway in Saint John.
New Brunswick has always closed to allow horsemen and women to race and enjoy racing action at Summerside and Truro Raceway during the past two-weeks.
Post time is slated for a 1:00 P.M start. There will be a total of six races including the regular top-class event that includes Emperor, who comes off his fastest trip ever in the Maritimes after a scorching 1:54.2 at Summerside.
With that convincing win last week, Emperor is the fastest winner this season in the field. He will have stiff competition from the outside entry Blood Money who comes off his solid performances in the Governor’s Plate at Summerside for Dr. Mitch Downey. He will have outside post-six.
Looking at the group, Thankyouallmyfans will start from post-one for owner Kate MacNeil and catch-driver John Davidson. Colin DeCourcey will get the driving assignment on Paris Beau who starts for Doug Becwith from post two.
Falll Bliss, another Dr. Mitch Downey entry, will leave from three. He has a season’s best at E.P.R of 1:58. Don Dickison will pilot his own tough vampaigner Double Down Dash from five. He has a win in Bangor this season of 1:58.4.
Horse Racing New Brunswick will continue with the Summer Handicapping contest, and the Autumn Gold Series this Saturday.
Racing can be seen live on Universum Media’s live stream and can be accessed by visiting the official website for Horse Racing New Brunswick.
