Hello Adios, Freshmen HarmonizingIt was always a post-Hambletonian feature but now the race for the orchids by glamour-boy soph pacers comes to us shortly after the Meadowlands Pace and before the August trotting classic. It’s the Adios Pace, a classic, still presented at its founding track, the Meadows, and still featuring great horses and a history of great wagering opportunities.
Eighteen of harness racing’s top soph-colt pacers—including North America Cup-winner Thinking Out Loud, Meadowlands Pace champion A Rocknroll Dance and Sweet Lou—compete in July 21’s eliminations for the $600,000 Delvin Miller Adios at the Meadows.
Tompkins-Geers Stakes are staples for two- and three-year-olds during the Grand Circuit season and are once again at Tioga Downs. The freshmen go on July 20.
