Otsego County Fair NYS Sire Stakes Harness Racing [Photos]
Yesterday I did something that I never did before at the Otsego County Fair. Now that is hard to say considering I've exhibited and attended the fair for many (over thirty...almost forty) years. I don't know why I have never done this, I mean it has always been there and I've done it at other places. Why not? Well yesterday I did something different. I attended the NYS Sire Stakes Harness Racing at the fair sponsored by Leatherstocking Equine Clinic, Vernon Downs, and Tioga Downs. I really enjoyed it.
The kids picked their favorite horses and then we cheered like crazy. What a great reason to yell and be loud. Luke Miller, fair president, and Pat Coleman of Oneonta Ford hosted the race day. T-shirts were thrown into the crowd throughout the event, 4-H kids helped in the stands, and spectators really had a good time.
We'll definitely go again next year.
