As the curtain comes down on the 2015 racing season at Vernon Downs on Saturday, November 21, Director of Racing Scott Warren has announced a pair of special events for the 'war horses' who battle week in and week out.

These events--one each for pacers and trotters--will be open to horses at least 10 years of age with over $100,000 in career earnings over at least 200 starts. Interested horsemen should contact Warren via phone at 315.829.6825 or via email at [email protected].

The closing night card will see one of those plucky veterans honoured, as 14-year-old My Fella will take one last curtain call at the Miracle Mile (Standardbreds are required to retire from racing at 15 years of age). Allie Berube owns and trains the son of Pacific Fella, who has amassed 63 wins in his career (as of this writing) and has earned over $660,000.
