A slate of provincial and municipal politicians will be attending Cornerstone Raceway’s Bring A Friend event this Friday, August 23.

The Honourable Ken Krawetz, Minister of Finance and The Honourable Donna Harpauer, Minister of Liquor and Gaming will be on hand at the Yorkton oval, as well as Bob Bjornerud, MLA for Melville – Saltcoats and a former Minister of Agriculture.

Bob Maloney, Mayor of Yorkton, and Yorkton’s MLA Greg Ottenbreit will also be on hand for the Bring A Friend festivities which will include draws for rides in the starting gate car and winner’s circle presentations. Free programs, food discounts and prize draws will also be featured.

In an interview with Trot Radio's Norm Borg, announcer Dave Farrell discusses the importance of bringing newcomers to the track for Friday's Bring A Friend National Challenge, plus the importance of bringing back the stakes event that will be contested on Friday night - the Prairie Lily. That event was resurrected, according to Farrell, with the support of the Saskatchewan Horse Federation and the efforts of Standardbred Canada director Carole Dunbar.

Farrell also discusses how the Yorkton Exhibition Association has concentrated its efforts into putting the 2013 race meet - the only 12 days of harness racing that Saskatchewan conducts this year.

Have a great night on the 23rd, and lets make it happen again next year, with more dates, higher purses, and perhaps a larger horse population. West Meadows in Regina, let's hope to see the horses racing there again too, next year.
