Along with the Roosevelt Raceway Reunion, the Standardbred Retirement Foundation is holding a memorabilia and collectible auction of great harness racing pieces. From Dan Patch to John Campbell, the collection is very broad. There are halters from Camtastic, Andover Hall and several others, colours from current and past drivers, Harness Breeder catalogues from the early 1900s and so much more.

The auction will open on Friday, July 21 at 5 p.m. and because some of racing's greats will be bringing collectibles to the Roosevelt Raceway reunion, new items will be added to the auction by Sunday, July 23. The auction will close on Tuesday, July 25 at 9 p.m. Some items will be displayed at the reunion. To access, go through SRF's website ( or go directly to
