Pickaway County Fairgrounds to host racing next weekend

Grove City, OH — The newly-renovated Pickaway County (Ohio) Fairgrounds will soon be reverberating with the excitement and the thrills of harness racing for three days beginning Saturday (June 15) at 1 p.m. along with full racing programs on Sunday (June 16) at 1 p.m. and Monday (June 17) at 4 p.m.

As they have since 1946, after a long winter’s worth of preparation, the Ohio Colt Racing Association’s 2- and 3-year-old colts and fillies are ready to strut their stuff.

Circleville is where it all starts for many of the 2-year-old Ohio-bred pacers and trotters as the Speed Committee team puts them on the first steps of their journey to hopefully fame and fortune.

Besides many memorial races being held in honor of those heroes of yesteryear, the summer-long Spring Haven Farm Ladies Driving Series is on Monday (June 17) where the gals get to showcase their driving abilities.

The Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association is also hosting a food drive in conjunction with the ladies for the Haven House of Pickaway County. Donate your non-perishable canned goods at the Racing with the Stars tent and get a prize. Bring five canned goods and you’ll receive at specially-designed T shirt.

Circleville was also the premier last year of the Racing With The Stars fan contest where a lucky contestant took their place in the winner’ circle just like an owner.

We’ll also be playing text trivia with questions about the race program as the popular fan contest kept folks guessing and winning right through Jug week and into the Fair finals. Be sure to stop by the Racing With The Stars tent to enter.
