Payments Due For Scioto Stakes

Published: March 11, 2021 11:41 am EST

Payments are due for races held at Eldorado Scioto Downs this summer. The Next Generation, Charlie Hill Memorial Trot and Ohio State Fair Stakes nominations are due March 15.

Ohio’s newest race, The Next Generation, debuted in 2020 for two-year-old Ohio-bred pacers. The 2021 edition will also have races for two-year-old Ohio-bred trotters. The nomination fee is $10,000 and buys the owner a spot; a horse does not need to be declared until the draw. All four divisions will be held July 2-3.

The Charlie Hill Memorial, four-year-old-and-up open trot, will kick off opening week at Scioto this season, on Thursday (May 6). The nomination fee for this $125,000 (est.) race is $500.

Payments are also due for the Ohio State Fair Stakes. Nomination fees of $250 are due for each of the eight two- and three-year-old divisions. The Ohio State Fair races will be carded Aug. 5-7.

Nominations for the Jim Ewart Memorial Pace, held Sept. 11, are not due until June 15.

More information about all the races listed above can be found at the Scioto Downs website.

The 2021 Scioto Downs 98-card racing season will run May 4 through Sept. 18. Questions about the upcoming season can be directed to the race office at 614.295.4668.
