It's a moment that will be remembered by racing fans, horsemen, and management for years to come in Maritime racing history.
On Friday, August 30th the maritime harness racing everywhere were buzzing about Big League's performance on that sunny Friday afternoon of exhibition week.
To recognize the moment, Horse Racing New Brunswick will be unveiling a new track record sign symbolic of the connections of Big League and his epic mile of 1:53.4 over Saint John's Exhibition Park Raceway.
Officials of Horse Racing New Brunswick will be on hand for the special moment as part of this Saturday's program at E.P.R. Neal Moase owns the four-year-old Four Starzzz Shark gelding and is trained by son Jonah. Dale Spence was in the drivers seat on that historic day.
