Kawartha Downs was awash with kids Saturday, July 29 as the track celebrated its annual Family Fun Night under perfect weather conditions.

The track was packed with youngsters and the young at heart who all enjoyed Hands On Horses, an initiative by the Ontario Harness Horsemen's Association which gives everyone in attendance the opportunity to ride around the track behind a retired standardbred. The kids also enjoyed face painting, incredible balloon animals, snow cones, snacks, games and activities along with draws and giveaways.

Brett MacDonald had hot hands as he recorded a hat trick on the nine-race card, with wins including in the sixth race St Lads Captain, who recorded his fifth consecutive victory, winning the $4,200 pacing feature in 1:55.4.

Racing returns to the Fraserville oval next Saturday with a 7 p.m. post time.
