The Raceway at The Western Fair District is gearing up for the $300,000 Molson Pace which will highlight the closing night program on Friday, May 25. This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever and fans should note that special post time of 6:50 p.m. has been implemented for that night only.

For the first time ever, the Molson ‘Post Time Party’ will be held featuring three live bands who will perform in the Progress Building , adjacent to the track, throughout the evening.

The headliner will be Dallas Smith, the former lead singer of the popular rock band Default. He is currently embarking on a solo career and his hit singles If It Gets You Where You Wanna Go and Somebody Somewhere are rapidly climbing the country charts.

Tickets for the concert are priced at $15, which includes a $5 betting voucher, good for any race on the Molson Pace program. They can be purchased online at www.westernfairdistrict.com.

On the wagering side, the pick-4 will offer an increased guaranteed pool this year of $15,000. And, once again, The Raceway will team up with the Horseplayers’ Association of North America (HANA) to allow horseplayers an opportunity to vote on which races make up the pick-4 sequence that night.

The pick-5 will feature an instant guarantee (yet to be determined) that night as well. Both wagers offer a 15% total takeout – two of the best values in Canadian harness racing.

In addition, one lucky patron that night will have their name drawn to receive a $500 win bet on the Molson Pace. Fans must be on track to qualify for the draw.

Defending champion Foiled Again, headlines the list of this year’s nominees which also includes pacing stars We Will See, Betterthancheddar, Up The Credit, Aracache Hanover, Atochia and Strand Hanover – just to name a few.

The Molson Pace program will also include a tribute to recent Hall Of Fame inductee and ‘London Legend’ Dave Wall. On the track, four City Of London Series finals and an OSS Gold Final for three-year-old colt trotters will highlight the undercard.

More details will be announced in the coming days. To keep up to date on this year’s Molson Pace, bookmarkwww.westernfairdistrict.com.
