If there are ten or fewer races the minimum purse is guaranteed at $750. It is the policy of the Great Pocomoke City Fair to only have five starters per race for safety reasons and to ensure that all starters earn a check.

In order for a horse to race at Pocomoke a horse is required to have electronic eligibility before entering. NO entries accepted without them.

If enough participants desire, sanctioned races with charted lines will be held, if not the races will be exhibition only as has been the custom at Pocomoke, with one exception.

The usual assortment of exhibition races will be carded including: The Jack Dolby Stars of the Future, The Senior Pace, The Heavyweight Challenge, The Powder Puff Derby and, of course, The Dash For Cash.
