Welcome to Harness Racing


Welcome to the wonderful world of Harness Racing.

I’m excited to get my blog underway and have the opportunity to bring my thoughts and analysis to DRF.com. With the Breeders Crown (the harness version of the Breeders’ Cup) eliminations on Friday and Saturday at Woodbine Racetrack, I cannot think of a better time to get this blog fired up.

Five eliminations for 2-year-olds are on tap on Friday and eight more elims for older horses and 3-year-olds are scheduled for Saturday. Once the also-rans are weeded out, we will have 12 full fields (six paces and six trots) with wonderful betting opportunities available for Finals night on October 29. For those that enjoy guaranteed pools, two $100,000 Pick Four wagers will be offered, and you can play them for as little as 20 cents.

I will be blogging my Crown thoughts and DRF.com will launch an events page next week. There you will find video analysis, features, past performances, live video, and much more.

As we inch towards the end of the year, we are working behind the scenes to provide you with Harness Eye and Daily Harness Program past performances right here on DRF.com. When that becomes a reality, I will be sure to post something.

If you are new to the harness world, welcome aboard! I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

If you are already a fan, check back often. I promise to provide some interesting thoughts and insight.

Check back tomorrow!
