Columbus, OH — Ohio Super Night, the richest day in Ohio harness racing history with 18 races going for $3.7 million in purses, will be at Eldorado Scioto Downs on Saturday (Sept. 9). First post is scheduled for 5 p.m.

“Never in the history of Ohio harness racing has there been such a great night to celebrate Ohio-sired horses,” said Joe Morris, Senior Vice President of Racing for Caesars Entertainment. “Of course we also have the Hill and Ewart races which are bringing in horses from across North America to Scioto.”

Special activities for the night will include a driver autograph session, special edition t-shirts tossed from the winner’s circle, a food truck court, live music on the patio and more.

With 18 races, there will be a robust wagering menu, including four $10,000 guaranteed wagers — the three 50-cent Pick-4s starting in races one, 11 and 15, as well as the Scarlet Championship 20-cent Pick-8, starting in race five, which will have a track low 14 percent takeout. Other wagers on the evening with 14 percent takeout include the three 50-cent Pick-5s, starting in races three, eight and 14.

There will be special coverage on Fox Sports 2 of the evening’s races from 8-11 p.m. as part of America’s Day at the Races, produced by the New York Racing Association (NYRA). Also, the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association “Saturday Night at the Races” team will be on site and streaming live on Facebook for the entirety of the card.
