Matt’s Blog — Weekend Preview June 3

Posted June 02, 2017 | Racing News

The first Wednesday of 2017 was one for the record books as HEMLOCK CHANNEL set a track record for 6 ½ furlongs, lowering the mark set in 1999 by Timely Ruckus to 1:15 1/5th.

There are 8 races both Friday night and Saturday afternoon, with full fields all over. Hopefully the weather turns around for the first Park After Dark.

Starting on June 9th, SHOWVIVOR returns to Northlands Park. Sign up now at

Each morning, you will choose one horse from ONE RACE on that day to finish first, second or third. After the races, the results will be calculated. If your selection finished first, second or third, you may continue the next race day. Otherwise, you’re out of the contest. The top handicapper who lasts the longest will win $2,500 in prize money!

There will also be $500 prizes for the runner up, the most winners and the highest priced winner.

No purchase necessary; free entry. No cost for registration. Contest is open to legal residents of Canada and the United States who are 18 years of age or older as of their date of registration.
