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.
