Fraser Downs resumes live harness racing starting this week on Thursday, Sept. 4 and Friday, September 5.

There is a ten race program set with first race post time at 6:00 pm. Before the start of the races there will be a moment of silence for horseman Steve Petrachuck, who recently passed away, and the third race will be named in his honor.

Post time on Friday is 7:00 pm. The main event is the $10,500 Open Pace in race two with Thunder Noiselisted as the 9-5 morning line favourite, starting mid-pack in the five-horse field for trainer/driver Bill Davis and the J J J Stables.

The five-year-old gelding by Island Fantasy won the Open in his last Fraser Downs race on April 25 and competed at Alberta Downs earlier this summer. He faces Miss Valentine Stakes champion Keep The Dream and newcomer Alligator Falls to his inside and regular Open competitors Cantbeatacheetah and Gotta Have Nukes to his outside.

Live racing will be held every Thursday and Friday evening until switching to a Friday evening and Sunday afternoon schedule in November.
