Opening Day a Rousing Success at Scarborough Downs. After suffering through a historically tough winter, southern Maine's harness racing fans came out in droves to witness the birth of the 2015 meet at Scarborough Downs on Saturday (March 28).

The faithful crowded the stands and cheered from the fences as ten ultra competitive races were showcased on a track groomed to perfection by a track crew who have worked tirelessly to combat whatever Mother Nature has had to throw at them. More...

Maine Legislature

THIS IS IT! The time has come to show Augusta what a new facility would mean to us, the industry, and to the State of Maine.

Monday, April 27th, is the day that can change/shape our future and the harness racing industry as we know it in the State of Maine. The VLA committee will be hearing all gaming bills starting at 9am at the State House in Augusta, Room 437 (4th floor).

We NEED to show up.... this is the big game. Come off the sidelines and join us on Monday. There is not a need to speak (unless you are so inclined). Our goal is to speak in numbers....we want to line the hallways and the committee hearing room with folks from the harness racing industry...fans, friends, neighbors, business partners, we NEED you. Drivers/trainers, wear your colors...others wear your favorite horse/harness related item.

Share and spread the word, especially to those who are not on online/internet savvy

Achilles Blue Chip sets new track and Maine state record!

The winning time of 1:51.4 eclipsed the previous record of 1:52.3, set in 2010 by Rodeo Du Ruisseau. Joe Trice purchased the horse several weeks ago to race in the Paul Bunyan Invitational at Bangor Raceway. “I bought him off a friend of mine for that big race in Bangor. He ended up being sick, and…actually dislocating his pelvis, so I had a chiropractor (Dr. Dave Jeffers) work on him a couple weeks ago”, driver-trainer Cushing commented. Read the entire press release.

Total fair income from harness racing for Maine's 25 agricultural fairs since 2005 is over 10 million dollars.

Maine Harness Racing Industry Statement for Expansion of Gaming in Southern Maine

Since Greyhound set a world trotting mark at the Kite Track in Old Orchard Beach in 1939, harness racing has had a long and storied history in Maine.  With this committee’s assistance our industry would like to continue that time honored tradition.  Harness racing preserves open farmland and contributes millions of dollars to the economy, supporting Mainers who are both directly and indirectly involved in the industry.
