Book Reading At Truro Raceway

The Canadian chapter of the United States Harness Writers Association is pleased to announce a public book reading by Bart Sears, compiler and editor of Sporting Memories: Selected Sports Articles by Dr. Cecil MacLean from the Antigonish Casket.

The 2014 book includes articles about legendary horsemen like Johnny Conroy and Ed Haley, as well as historical essays on Cape Breton and mainland Nova Scotia harness racing, particularly at Truro Raceway.

The reading will be part of Truro Raceway's Atlantic Grand Circuit Week events, and take place in front of the grandstand on Saturday, July 23, from 6:30-7 p.m. Books will be available for purchase in the grandstand afterwards.

USHWA Canada is also sponsoring a cooler presentation on the Sunday, July 24 card at Truro, a first for the newest chapter of the 69-year-old professional harness racing communicators' organization.
