Schenectady, NY — Dates were announced today for the first 3-year-old legs of the 2020 New York Sire Stakes season. The harness racing season will open with 3-year-old trotting fillies at Tioga Downs on June 21.

It is important to note that racing schedules have not all been finalized at tracks that are not yet open. The revised calendar will feature an equal number of legs for all ages and divisions.

Here are the initial revised dates:

3-Year-Old Trotting Fillies—Sunday (June 21) at Tioga Downs
3-Year-Old Trotting Colts—Wednesday (June 24) at Vernon Downs
3-Year-Old Pacing Colts—Sunday (June 28) at Tioga Downs
3-Year-Old Pacing Fillies—Thursday (July 2) at Yonkers Raceway

“There are many factors at play here that keep our plans changing on a consistent basis, but we wanted to provide a target start date for participants,” said M. Kelly Young, executive director of the Agriculture and NYS Horse Breeding Development Fund. “While we look forward to providing a complete schedule in the coming days, we felt it necessary to provide some certainty for planning purposes. The 2-year-old events will begin on or about July 4.”

Participants are asked to review the racing procedures set in place by each track and be prepared to follow them.

Please call or email Kelly Young with any questions. She can be reached at or at 518.388.0224.
