Although simulcasting action will continue, September 15 was to mark the final night of live harness racing action at Toledo’s Raceway Park.
The track has been offering entertainment to its patrons since opening the doors in 1962. The track’s finale was to host fan appreciation specials and favorites.
Mayor Michael Bell was to be in attendance to present a trophy and talk about the significance of Raceway Park to Toledo.
One lucky guest could win a luxurious casino getaway to the M Resort in Las Vegas. Sunday’s patrons were to enjoy live music throughout the evening from the Megan Lesle Band on the grandstand apron.
Concession specials will included 50-cent hot dogs, soft drinks and popcorn. Attendees can also purchase live racing programs for just $1.00.
Among events throughout the evening, fans enjoyed special guest announcers who were scheduled to be on hand to call the racing action. Sunday post time was 6 p.m. Admission and parking were to be free.
If you get this in time, you don’t want to miss this last opportunity to see live harness racing in the Toledo market. The 2014 racing season will be held at a brand new facility, Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway.
