Five Divisions of Austin Series This Sunday

June 25, 2020 (DRESDEN) – The final of the Mark Austin Pacing Series in two weeks promises to be one for the ages as five divisions will go post ward this Sunday afternoon.

The Mark Austin Pacing series in memory of trainer Mark Austin who got his start at Dresden and passed away suddenly in 2014 is for maiden pacers who are non- winners of 1 race or $5,000 (F&M $6,000) lifetime, as of midnight April 15, 2020.

Acefortyfour Dome is the favourite in the first division for driver Nick Boyd. The three-year-old Up the Credit filly is co-owned by Michael Timpano and Colin Burrows while Don Johnson is the trainer. She has won her last two starts at Georgian Downs with times of 1:56.3 and 1:55.3 respectively.

The second division has Coin Flip programmed as the even money favourite for the combination of owner Amy Hardy, trainer Jack Wray and driver Scott Wray. The three-year-old Royal Mattjesty colt has won back to back races at Hiawatha in times of 1:59.2 and 1:57.2.

Michael Timpano and Colin Burrows are the owners of another favourite, Acefortyfour River in the third division, a half sister to Acefortyfour Dome in the first. The three-year-old Up the Credit filly is trained by Don Johnson and driven by Nick Boyd and has won two of her last three starts including a wire to wire win at Grand River in 1:57.4.

The fourth division is headlined by even money morning line favourite Dreaming Out Loud with Tyler Borth at the controls. The three-year-old Thinking Out Loud colt has won three in a row at Dresden including an OSS Prospect Series win over Dresden in 1:57.1. Dreaming Out Loud is owned by Chris Cain and Keith Cullen while Cullen does the conditioning.

Dresden’s leading dash driver Borth is also between the shafts for the 1-1 morning line favourite of the fifth division, Frownies Miracle. The three-year-old Warrawee Needy gelding has won his last two starts with times of 1:58 at Grand River and 1:59.1 at Hanover. Bill Brown is the owner while Kyle Bossence is the trainer.

“This is going to be a real good series,” said Race Secretary Ian Fleming. “There are a lot of very good racehorses entered. I think the final will be a great race.”

DRESDEN RACEWAY ADDS INCENTIVE TO ENTER HORSES 

   DRESDEN RACEWAY ADDS INCENTIVE TO ENTER HORSES 

June 10, 2020 (DRESDEN) – Dresden Raceway has added an incentive for trainers to enter their horses at Dresden Raceway starting this Sunday.

Dresden Raceway has partnered with After Hours Automotive in Sarnia to offer draws for every non-stakes overnight race that has at least seven horses.

Every race that has seven horses will have a random draw for either a $50 gas card or a $50 Visa gift card and each race that has 8 horses will have a draw for either a $100 gas card or $100 Visa gift card.

Steward McQueen, the owner of After Hours Automotive in Sarnia and horse owner is hoping this helps by drawing horses to Dresden.

“Dresden Raceway is pleased to partner with After Hours and Stew,” said track publicist Gary Patterson, adding,” he is a smart businessman who loves racing and wants to see tracks like Dresden live up to their potential.”

“The goal is to try and fill all the races with eight horse fields and hopefully trainers will see this as added incentive to come to Dresden Raceway.” Patterson said.

Dresden is also debuting their new look graphics package on Sunday as well as their pre-race show.

Post time is set for 1:00pm.
