The W.N. Reynolds Memorial Stakes, Landmark Stakes and Tompkins-Geers Stakes will all transition to early-closing events beginning with the two-year-old crop of 2017.

No yearling payments will be taken on these three races in 2016.

Beginning in 2017, payments in the year of the race will be accepted for these events, all with eight races for two and three-year-olds of each gender.

All three events will remain important stops on the traditional Grand Circuit calendar.

The Landmark, which is owned by Historic Track, will remain at that traditional half-mile track in Goshen, New York.

The Tompkins-Geers and Reynolds will be raced at Tioga Downs and the Meadowlands Racetrack. Specific dates and venues will be announced in the year of the races.

For more information, or if you have any questions, please contact Callie Davies-Gooch, Stakes Manager at the Hambletonian Society, which administers these and many of harness racing’s premier events.
