First Tracks Cumberland has announced a post time change to 2:30 p.m. (EDT) that goes into effect for tomorrow’s live, full card of harness racing Tuesday (May 25).

“The change was prompted by an effort to position our product more effectively around the national timetable. On Saturday nights at 6:00 p.m. (EDT) six harness tracks begin racing in a span of 20 minutes,” said Ben Kenney, a key member of the management team of Black Bear Racing.

“It is Cumberland’s intention to compliment, rather than compete with, that flurry of activity.”

The Tuesday (May 25) card at the iconic Southern Maine oval presents nine races which should conclude shortly after 5 p.m. (EDT)

For Saturday (May 29), a new addition to the condition sheet marks the beginning of the Maine Amateur Driving Club (MADC) series, with a purse of $4,000. The conditions allow for pacers that are non-winners of $2,000 in their last five starts. Extra purse money has been added to that class, and Standardbreds that are Maine-bred get an allowance of $2,500.

Qualifiers will now be held following the Saturday pari-mutuel card at approximately 5:45 p.m.

Racing from Cumberland is presented live each Tuesday and Saturday through July 31, with a new post time of 2:30 p.m. For more information go the First Tracks Cumberland website.
