Northfield, OH – MGM Northfield Park’s premier event on the racing calendar, the Carl Milstein Memorial, a by-invitation-only event for the sport’s top three-year-old pacers, will be raced for a $250,000 purse on Saturday night (August 15).
Uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of two of Northfield’s earlier stakes events in 2020, the Battle of Lake Erie and the Cleveland Trotting Classic.
“All of us at MGM Northfield Park are pleased that the Carl Milstein Memorial is a go on August 15,” said Dave Bianconi, Northfield’s Director of Racing Operations. “I have been in contact with the connections of many top three-year-olds across North America to assemble a great field for our top night of racing this year.”
The undercard for the Milstein will include the $50,000 Myron Charna President’s Pace, an Invitational for top Ohio-sired veteran pacers. Ohio Sires Stakes legs for both three-year-old filly pacers and three-year-old colt trotters will also be contested.
Post time for Milstein night at Northfield is 6:00 (Eastern) on Saturday night, August 15.
