Monticello Raceway

The Amenities of a Vegas Atmosphere in Conjunction with Exciting Harness Racing


   Monticello Raceway’s Heritage Drivers Series will continue on Monday, October 22 with the Maple Leaf Pace, a race that features drivers of Canadian descent.


  It will be the eighth and final preliminary leg of the year-long series for drivers of different ethnicities. In November the winning drivers in each of the ethnic prelims will  battle in the final of the series dubbed the All-American Cup.


   Eric Warner, the track’s Director of Racing, is currently in the process of seeking Canadian-born drivers to compete in the Maple Leaf Pace.


  “We have quite of few drivers of Canadian heritage currently racing with us but we will need eight in order to have a full field,” Warner said.


  Among the drivers  of Canadian descent currently racing here  of whom  Warner was referring to include:  John  Gilmour, Jacques Primeau Terry Finch, Bruce Borden and Jimmy Devaux.


Drivers who already have earned a berth in the All-America Cup  via their triumphs in a previous series leg include: Bobby Williams, Jr. (Dr. Martin Luther King Pace); Lisa Krom (Lady Godiva Pace); Jimmy Taggart, Jr. ( St. Paddy Pace);  Alan Charles (Passover Pace); Mike Merton (Munich Mile), Mike Forte (Godfather Pace)., and Zeke Parker (Mayflower Mile).


But to reiterate Warner’s comment “we still will need eight drivers to fill the Maple Leaf Pace”.


Any driver of Canadian heritage interested in competing on October 22  please call  Warner   in the racing office at 845.794.4100ext557  or call our publicity office at ext. 455.”
