This year has been full of changes due to COVID-19. Many restrictions have put a hold on events throughout the summer, but harness racing has remained a continuing event throughout the past couple of months.

For those not familiar with harness racing, this is a sport involving standardbred horses pulling a two-wheeled vehicle, called a sulky, that carries the driver. There are two different types of harness racing horses, those called trotters, who stride with their front left and back right legs moving together at the same time. The second of the two harness racing horses is the pacer. The pacer moves both legs on one side of their body at the same time.
