COLUMBUS, MN. - Running Aces Harness Park's annual "Back To The Track" night has been dubbed "Super Saturday" with a number of special promotions and enhanced purses on the ten-race program. In addition to getting free programs, fans will have an opportunity to get autographs of all the leading drivers from 6:15-6:55 p.m., will have a chance to catch T-shirts tossed from the winner's circle after each race, and might be chosen as one of ten lucky patrons to get a two-seater jog cart ride around the track between races.
Total purses on Saturday night will be $84,250 which is 50% higher than normal. The increased purses were made possible by a Saturday night weather-related cancellation three weeks ago.
The feature race is the $18,000 "Back To The Track Sweepstake" for open distaff pacers. Lady's Art has been installed as the 3-1 morning line favorite in the full field of nine.
She will be seeking her third win in six open company starts at Running Aces for driver-trainer. All but one mare in the race has won at least once in the first seven weeks of the Minnesota meet, and that one has a pair of runnerup finishes in the fillies and mares opens. The other contestants are New Manhattan ( ), Love Live Laugh ( ), That's Mara (Kim Pluta), Blazing Fury ( ), Delco Voracious (Jesse DeLong), Nocturnal Rose (Kody Massey), Keystone Christa ( ) and Country Jewel ( ).
Post time for "Super Saturday - Back To The Track Night" is 7:00 p.m. (CST)
