Grove City, OH — The Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association and the Ohio Fair Racing Conference will kick off the county fair racing circuit with live streaming coverage of harness racing from the Paulding County fairgrounds Tuesday (June 16) and Wednesday (June 17).
The Paulding County Fair was scheduled to begin Monday (June 15). It was to be the first fair of the 2020 season but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Three days of harness racing were originally planned for the fair, but that has been trimmed back to two days.
The 12-race card schedule for Tuesday will be live streamed on the OHHA Facebook page beginning at 4 p.m. Replays of the races will be available on the Trot and Pace Marketing website, trotandpacemarketing.com, following completion of the racing. Wednesday’s race card will also be streamed live on the OHHA Facebook page. Post time is 4 p.m. Wednesday’s races will also be available for replay on the Trot and Pace Marketing website.
The OHHA and the OFRC are planning to live stream Ohio Fair Racing Conference races throughout the summer.
OFRC Regional Coordinator Bill Peters says, “With fans not allowed at the fairgrounds, this is a way for owners and fans to see the races. We are hoping it might expand our fan base and expose some people to harness racing that might not have seen it before.”
