Plainville, MA --- Plainridge Park is offering two late-closer events for 2-year-old trotters and 2-year-old pacers on Monday (Aug. 13) as part of their Harbor Lights series. 

The Wood End Light is an Open late closer for 2-year-old trotters with a $12,500 preliminary leg on Monday (Aug. 13) and a $15,000 leg on Monday (Sept. 3). The final will be held on Monday (Sept. 17) with a purse of $20,000. 

The Nauset Light is an Open late closer for 2-year-old pacers with a $12,500 preliminary leg on Monday (Aug. 13) and a $15,000 leg on Monday (Sept. 3). The final will also be held on Monday (Sept. 17) with a purse of $20,000. 

Both of these series have no nominating or starting fees and will be divided by gender if there are enough entries to do so. The conditions do not mandate racing in more than one leg to be eligible for final so this is an excellent opportunity for any 2-year-old who got a late start to the season or is currently gearing up for upcoming stakes like the $1.28 million (est.) Massachusetts Sire Stakes that kick off on Monday (Oct. 1). 

Entries for the first Monday (Aug. 13) events must be made no later than Thursday (Aug. 9) at 9 a.m. when the box closes. 

For further information or to call in entries, please contact the race office or Race Secretary Paul Verrette at 508.576.4485 or 508.576.4486.
