Truro Raceway would like to remind trainers and owners of Maritime-sired two-year-old colts or fillies in 2024 that the deadline to purchase a slot for the Inglis Jewellers Diamond Classic is Monday, April 15.

The Inglis Jewellers Diamond Classic slot buy-in race returns with a $50,000 purse and an incredible $2,500 diamond necklace, courtesy of Inglis Jewellers, for each division winner. The winners will also receive an original artwork of their horse, courtesy of harness artist Michelle Hogan.

A reminder that there are two divisions of the Diamond Classic, one for Maritime-sired two-year-old colts and one for Maritime-sired two-year-old fillies. 

Slots can be purchased for $6,000 each and may be sold, traded or subject to a lease agreement, and the horse doesn't need to be declared until time of entry. The Diamond Classic will be held on Sunday, Nov. 3 at Truro Raceway.

All conditions can be found in Standardbred Canada's Stakes Guide.

Purchases can be made through the Standardbred Canada Stakes Online system or email Emelia Gillespie at [email protected].
