Be a Part of the Solution -- Reconnect in Present to Appreciate our Past -- Maine Harness Racing Since the 19th Century

-- Bring the Past to Present to Create the Future --
We live in a time where many check on their lives and their relationships with a Smart Phone. Perhaps we need to step back and re-evaluate
the choices that we make as we live each day.

The "All-Heart" Campaign is asking you to consider returning to the grandstands throughout Maine and learn to appreciate the Standardbred Athletes alongwith their reinsmen as they compete for purses on the oval turf.

Maine's harness racing tradition dates back to the 19th century. Many race meets were attended by over 10,000 fans. 
The Balch Stallion Race in Boston during the 1890'sattracted 40,000 fans. 

Take the time to learn more about harness racing.
