BLOOMSBURG PA - The last round of preliminaries in Pennsylvania Fair Sire Stakes competition, scheduled today and tomorrow at the Bloomsburg Fair, have had to be cancelled due to unsafe track conditions caused by a storm of hindering factors, with no quick repair methods ensuring both equine and human safety available. All unscratched entrants will receive an equal share of the purse after their starting fee is paid.
All unscratched entrants will receive three points in the Pennsylvania Fair Championship standings, from which the top horses will qualify for the $200,000 Pennsylvania Fair Championship Night at The Meadows on Saturday evening, October 5. The points, and the splitting of any ties by calculating how much money a horse has earned on the fair circuit, are being finalized this afternoon (Monday), and should be released tomorrow, along with a listing of those horses whose current pointtotals would get them in the finals directly should they choose to enter (and the "bubble" horses, hoping someone is not going to race).
