North America Cup Night Set

Pepsi North America Cup night will not only feature some of, if not the best harness racing in Canada this year, but also loads of contests, draws, music and entertainment for fans on track this Saturday (June 15) at the Campbellville, Ont. oval, with an earlier 7:05 p.m. post time.

The Woodbine Entertainment Group has announced that Sportswriter, the 2010 Pepsi North America Cup winner, will be greeting fans at Mohawk on Cup Night.

Trained by Casie Coleman, Sportswriter made headlines with his then-world record performance of 1:49.2 in the Metro Pace in 2009.

The son of Artsplace banked $1.6 million from 14 lifetime starts.

Sportswriter will be welcoming fans at the Mohawk main entrance from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
