After racing in the afternoon of Monday, December 31 Monticello Raceway will commence its 56th season of live harness racing on New Year’s Day, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 and programs will follow on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday that week.
After the Friday card of January 4 it will be back to the normal four- day-a-week schedule of Mondays through Thursdays, with one exception; the raceway will be dark on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Monday, January 21.
All post times during the month of January will be at 12:25pm.
On January 22 the Mighty M will honor the memory of Dr. King with its 13th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Pace, a race that will feature the talents of African-American drivers.
Simulcast wagering on both harness and thoroughbreds will continue seven days a week throughout the month. And of course, there’s also gaming and entertainment daily at Monticello Casino and Raceway.
