The last sanctioned event of the Racing Under Saddle season will take place Friday evening (October 6), held at The Raceway at Western Fair District. The Harlequin Finale will feature a full field on the gate.
Lets Leavem, a two-time winner in 2016, will leave from post seven with owner-rider Sarah Town and has been installed as the 7-5 morning line favourite, while stablemate Kamikaze Lady, a winner in 2016, is the second choice at 3-1 and will have Stephanie Werder—the winning rider from the 2016 season finale—flying in from Sweden for a visit and picking the live ride.
The stellar field includes All Out Henry (post two, Karoline Neilsen) at 7-2; the consistent Majestic Mystic (post 5, Natalie Elliott) at 9-2; and Pukka (post three), a two-time winner in 2016, for the husband and wife trainer-rider team of Keith and Maggie Jones at 5-1.
Rounding out the field are the RUS iron horse Callie Magoo (post four, Stacey Reinsma, 7-1) and Precious Phoebe (post six, Marielle Enberg, 8-1).
The night plans to be an exciting evening for The Raceway’s featured event with the Racing Under Saddle riders doing double duty. The ladies will be on hand at 5:30 p.m. to pass out pieces of an eight-foot cake and again after the sixth race to host a meet and greet.
Come out for an exciting night of racing and fun on Friday at The Raceway at Western Fair District, and watch The Harlequin, which is carded as race four on the 10-race card.
