Hanover Raceway makes the switch from Wednesday to Thursday nights in 2012, but post-time remains 7:15 p.m. To celebrate, it will be harness racing fan's 'Customer Appreciation Day' with $1 hot dogs and $1 French fries at the concession stand throughout the races.
Thursday night racing will also be more interactive with racing fans, as there are two handicapping contests taking place on the mid-week cards.
Fans can participate in a brand new contest called Pick-3 Fantasy Harness Racing. Contestants pick their fantasy team consisting of three drivers and three horses from races 3 through 12 on each Thursday night card in July.
Then, their team earns points for every top three finish throughout the contest races. Pick-3 Fantasy Harness Racing will run each of the 1st 3 Thursday night cards in July with the top 8 point earners advancing to the final on Dream of Glory elimination night with $175 in prizes on the line.
For more information on the contest, visit the Hanover Raceway Facebook page. Then, in August the traditional handicapping contest will return which is always a fan favourite. Again Fans will pick a horse in 5 different races earning points for a top 2 finish. The top 3 point earners in August will win betting vouchers.
Thursday night’s card features 12 great races. Post-time is set for 7:15 p.m. Hanover Raceway’s races are also streamed live at www.hanoverraceway.com.
