Harness Racing TV personality and US Trotting’s Social Media Manager Wendy Ross will be on hand Tuesday (June 22) at Cumberland to host the “Tuesdays at the Track” Corporate Sponsorship event.
“We are excited to have Wendy make the trip from Ohio to host our first corporate day at the races,” said Mike Cianchette, the CEO of First Tracks Investments. “Her presence adds a prestigious and professional voice to our presentations with local businesses and community leaders.”
Ross is a familiar face anywhere she travels in Standardbred sport, having worked closely with The Meadowlands, Tioga Downs, The Meadows, Northfield Park, and the Little Brown Jug. In addition, her current role at the USTA provides Ross and her fans non-stop access to the Grand Circuit and other marquee events across the Northeast and Mid West.
Cianchette developed the "Tuesdays at the Track' event to engage and enroll local businesses and people from the greater Portland, Maine area into harness racing. First Tracks Cumberland is pleased to welcome over one hundred employees and representatives from Gorham Savings Bank, HM Payson Financial, Optimum Construction, and Porta & Company Commercial Real Estate. The groups will enjoy a fun-filled day at the harness track, complete with winners circle presentations for each entity, and horse blankets provided for the each of the winning connections.
Tuesday’s full card of 10 pari-mutuel harness races features a $10,422 Maine Standardbred Breeders Stake for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings, with an early $9,967 non-betting race featuring 3YO Maine-bred trotting fillies.
Live harness racing from Cumberland is presented each Tuesday and Saturday through early August. First-race post time is 2:30 p.m. (EDT).
