Harness racing action at Northside Downs is expected to be fast and furious on Saturday afternoon when the Atlantic Sires Stakes three-year-old pacing colts take to the North Sydney oval.

Northside Downs Race Secretary, Collie Sparling, is expecting some fast race times on the Saturday afternoon card. "I call the track the speedway these days, as we've been seeing some really fast times at the track," says Sparling.

“Last weekend there were 11 races at the track with a time of 2:01 or better so I think there will be some really fast times posted by these three-year-old colts,” says Sparling.

“Last race season one division of three-year-old colts clocked a time of 1:55, so who knows what this season will bring,” adds Sparling.

There will be two “A” divisions of the pacing colts each going for a substantial purse pool of $10,280 and one “B” division will go for $2500.

Points earned in each Atlantic Sires Stakes “A” division event go towards earning a spot in the season ending Atlantic Breeders Crown Championships. This year’s event will be hosted by Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park on October 8th and 9th.

Post time at Northside Downs on Saturday is 1:30 pm.
