Vernon NY - The Dr Harry M. Zweig Memorial conditions follow the top money winners format. The Zweig conditions allow for multiple consolations of the stake to reduce the possibility of entry solely with the expectation of refund. There will be consolations for as many harness racing entrants as possible in declining order, measured by 2016 earnings (as recognized by the USTA).
Please read this Article of the conditions to be informed of the details.
The box for the Zweig will close at 9:00 tomorrow Wednesday, July 20. Questions may be directed to the Racing Office at (315) 829-6825.
"Racing Conditions: The Main Event will be limited to the highest money winning horses in 2016 of those that declare as of the published declaration date and time that equal the number of positions on the starting gate. The remaining declared horses will be eligible to the Consolations, segregated by 2016 seasonal earnings. USTA records (including currency conversions) on earnings shall be accepted as being official. There will be two (2) "also eligible" drawn for the Finals and the Consolations. Those horses designated as also eligible in the Main Event will be drawn into the Consolations, but may be eligible to draw into the Main Event no later than scratch time for the race. Horses eligible for the Main Event may not race in the Consolation. At least seven (7) horses must be entered for each Consolation or they may be canceled at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. If a Consolation race does not fill or if a declared horse fails to draw into either the Main Event or a consolation, all sustaining payments made as a three year old will be refunded to the owner at the time of entry, provided that the horse meets the current qualifying standards for the race meeting.
Entry Fee Main Event: Colts: $4,000 Fillies: $2,000
Entry Fee Consolation(s) Colts: $1,000/$500 Fillies: $500/$250
