Both fillies and colts are racing in their fourth and final leg of the 2012 Ohio Sires Stakes, their last chance to earn points to be eligible to the Ohio Sires Stakes Championships. They will be held at Scioto Downs in Columbus on Saturday, September 8, 2012.
Labor Day Happenings: There will be no live racing on Northfield’s half-mile oval on Labor Day (September 3), but both day and night simulcasting action will be in full swing. Northfield Park opens at noon on Labor Day for patrons to wager on all of the top harness and thoroughbred racetracks.
Labor Day is also Dollar Day at Northfield. Patrons can choose from hot dogs, soft drinks, Miller Lite 12 oz. draft beers and much more on the dollar menu. Guests will also enjoy free parking, admission and private TV carrels all day and night.
