Monticello, NY --- Beginning Monday (March 3) and continuing with just one exception through Oct. 31, all post times at Monticello Raceway will be at 12:50 p.m.
The exception occurs on Friday night (July 4) when post time will be at 5:30 p.m. to allow for the annual fireworks extravaganza after the races.
Live racing during the month of March will continue four times weekly on the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
“Now that the days are getting longer we will be able to begin our programs a little later in the afternoon and still complete our race cards prior to the darkness,” said General Manager Shawn Wiles.
Simulcast wagering on Thoroughbreds -- as well as some other harness tracks -- will be available during the afternoons while the evenings are largely devoted to harness simulcasts.
