Truro Raceway Announces Spring Opener

It's off to the races for Truro fans this May. The harness racing community is getting ready to start 2017s season on Sunday, May 7th with a 1:00pm Post Time.

Kelly MacEachen, Event Coordinator at the NSPEC Complex where the Truro Raceway is located, says she's excited to get the live racing up and running. "We're looking forward to some new things this year; our Cheering for Charity campaign has taken on a new twist." MacEachen says charities and community organizations will be fundraising as a part of the live race cards by selling special race-day packages. She says that the Truro Raceway is partnering with a variety of groups to help create a unique experience. Groups will sell tickets which include prime seating in the grandstand, a meal from the Top of the Turn diner, and betting vouchers. All of the profit from the tickets goes directly to the organization selling them.

While there isn't a charity lined up for the season opener yet, some dates have already been booked and organizers are confident it will be a popular fundraising opportunity for the community.
