Maine’s 2022 Harness Racing Season Set to Begin April 8!
On November 19, 2021, the Maine State Harness Racing Commission approved a 2022 Racing Calendar that included 144 days of racing spanning nine months and nine tracks. However, a series of potential adjustments relating to fair racing are now pending, with final decisions expected on March 28. Following approval of any changes, an official 2022 calendar will be posted on the MSHRC website. In the meantime, the 2022 Maine Harness Racing season resumes April 8 at First Tracks Cumberland with a post time of 3 PM. We hope to see you at the track!
