2023 Harness Racing at Bloomsburg Fair - Admission is FREE
Two-year-olds will race on Friday, September 22nd. Three-year-olds will race on Saturday,
September 23rd. At Bloomsburg, we can start 6 across the starting gate, with one trailer. If
more than that number enter a class, the class is split into two groups.
There are 4 classes each day with an A and B series. Each competitor must have been sired by a
registered stallion standing in Pennsylvania. All races are one-mile dashes.
All racers must show an acceptable line at a pari-mutuel track with the following times:
- 2:10 for 2YO trotters
- 2:06 for 2YO pacers
- 2:08 for 3YO trotters
- 2:04 for 3YO pacers
All 2YO and 3YO fair starters must have two full days off between races. All Sire Stakes are
raced in separate colt and filly divisions.
Starting fees Group A: $75 and Group B: $50 will be paid to host track and added to purse.
The purse will be distributed as follows: 50-25-12-8-5 if five starters or more; 50-25-15-10 if four starters; 60-30-10 if three starters; 65-35 if two starters; and 100 in case of a walkover.
The point system used towards determining championship horses will be 35-25-15-10-8-5-4-2 per the order of finish. Must have a minimum of five starts to be eligible for the championship. Only points earned in Group A are eligible for the fair finals. If you win 3 out of 4 starts in Group B you must move up to Group A. Finishing 1st or 2nd in Group A you must remain in Group A
