After a week off for the Clinton Spring Fair, live harness racing returned to the Huron County Oval with strong wagering numbers for the third week of the season.

Mutuel betting totals topped $29,000 for the 10-race card on June 9.

The trackside fundraiser was co-hosted by the Seaforth Stars and Blyth/Brussels Crusaders Minor Hockey Associations and through a barbecue, bake sale and 50/50 draw the organizations were able to raise just over $2,000 to go towards their upcoming seasons.

“We’ve had such an overwhelming response to our fundraising program, that we are ending up with more groups than we have race dates,” said Jessica Carnochan, the marketing manager for the Clinton Raceway.

“We thought, in order to accommodate as many groups as we can, we brought some organizations together, to co-host.”

Funds from the day are shared between the two groups.

Winning happened both on and off track with the Super Sunday Show, sponsored by Natures nest in Londesboro.
