Officials with Pocono Downs have announced that upon consultation with the Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen’s Association, it has been decided that consolation races for the four events, which comprise the Sun Stakes Saturday will be offered.

The consolation events will be added to Pocono's live card on Saturday, June 29, which will also feature the Sun Stakes finals.

There will be a $50,000 consolation for the Ben Franklin Free-For-All Pace, the Earl Beal Jr. Memorial Three-Year-Old Trot and the Max C. Hempt Memorial Three-Year-Old Pace. There will also be a $30,000 consolation for the James M. Lynch Memorial Three-Year-Old Filly Pace.

The release states that from those who enter, entries will be determined on the official order of finish for those who did not qualify for the finals. Anyone interested in these events should contact the race office on Tuesday, June 25 before 9:00 a.m.

First-race post time for Sun Stakes Saturday is 6:30 p.m.

Additionally, there will be two racing-under-saddle events prior to the official card. The first of the races will take place at approximately 6:10 p.m., and the second at approximately 6:20 p.m.
