The Atlantic Standardbred Breeders Association has announced that it is going to pay out the ASBA contribution for the Atlantic Sires Stakes races for two- and three-year-old colts that have been rescheduled multiple times due to Hurricane Dorian.

The three-year-old colts were scheduled to race at Northside Downs on Saturday, September 7. Due to the forecast of Hurricane Dorian, the decision was made to have Inverness Raceway host the two ‘A Division’ races with its Sunday, September 8 card, as Inverness was already scheduled to host the ATSS two-year-old colts that afternoon.

With the storm hitting the Atlantic provinces, Inverness officials made the decision to move the track’s card of racing to Monday, September 9. The storm created a lot of power outages in the Atlantic provinces and there was much damage to many areas. As of Monday morning, Inverness still did not have power and the estimated time for restoration was Wednesday, September 11.

Due to not having power, Inverness cancelled its card of racing for Monday, September 9.

After careful consideration, and after exhausting all dates and efforts, the ASBA has made the decision to pay out the ASBA contribution for the two-year-old colts’ and three-year-old colts’ races. The amount will be divided equally among the horses that were entered to race. The points for the ‘A Divisions’ for both the two- and three-year-old colts will also be divided equally among the horses that were entered to race.
