NORTH SYDNEY, N.S. – With sunny skies in the forecast, Northside Downs will play host to the Atlantic Sires Stakes for three-year-old pacing colts and fillies on Saturday afternoon.
The Atlantic Sires Stakes’ performers were slated to have raced at Northside Downs last weekend, but the card was postponed due to the forecasted weather conditions and potentially unsafe track conditions.
Two divisions of the A pacing fillies will each go for a purse pool of $9,120. Meanwhile, the colts will compete in three A divisions for the winner’s share of the $7,040 purses.
The colts and fillies will also each go in two B events for purses of $2,500 per dash.
Points earned in each A pacing event go towards securing a coveted spot in the season-ending Atlantic Breeders Crown championships.
Post time Saturday is noon.
