Scarborough, Maine (Saturday, August 17, 2014) -.In quick response to being called out by our good friends at Plainridge Racecourse, the drivers at Scarborough Downs answered in kind by partaking in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Sunday (8-17).
The water was chilly but the cause was worthwhile and the baton has been passed via of the challenge route to the drivers at Saratoga and Yonkers raceways.
In charity and cooperation, the Maine Amateur Driving Club donated their 5% driver's commission ($150) for the day to ALS Research.
Check out the video feed via You Tube.
Live racing continues throughout the summer at Scarborough Downs with the Friday and Saturday cards scheduled to get underway at 4:30 p.m. (EDT) and the popular Sunday matinees kicking off at 1:05 p.m.
