    Harness Racing
    Harness racing , for those who do not know, is a sport in which horses draw light gigs or sulkies and compete a the trotting or pacing gait, rather than at the gallop. Along with the light harness many horses always wear a head check, and the pacers wear a leg harness or hobbles, designed to discourage the horse from breaking into a gallop. Sometimes special races are held for horse trotting under saddle, and for these also, harness such a check and hobbles is used. By the mid 18th century most European countries and the United States turned their attention to the production of harness racing horses as a specialized breed. In all of these attempts the English Thoroughbred played a significant role. In Russia, Count Orlov was at this time producing his famous Orlov Trotters, and later they were reinforced with Thoroughbred blood. One of the resultant foals was Bellfounder, who in turn sired Messenger, the most famous and influential of all harness racing sires. In England in the mid 1700's, horses pulling public vehicles ( stage coaches or mail) were often matched in informal contest on country dirt roads and Britain began to develop the smaller but speedy Norfolk Trotter, a product of local mares and selected stallion descended from a foundation sire of the Throughbred breed. One of the resultant foals was Bellfounder, who in turn sired Messenger, the most famous and influential of all harness racing sires. The English Thoroughbred and their progeny Norfolk Trotters were also in great demand for crossing purposes in France, the Netherlands, and other European countries.

    Harness Racing A perennial Fair favorite, the excitement of harness racing comes to the grandstand at noon Saturday, September 4 and Monday, September 6. A sport with a long tradition — and one that calls for great skill on the part of the drivers — harness racing appeals to both the young and old. In addition to the thrill of the race itself, spectators have the option of parimutuel wagering. The Canfield Fair races are presented by the Canfield Harness Horsemen's Association (CHHA), one of the largest horsemen's groups in the state (over 100 members), and also a group that has been extremely active in the community for over 30 years. In addition to continually improving the track and barn area at the Fairgrounds, in 2003 the CHHA expanded its scholarship program to present two $500 scholarships to local youths to help pay for higher education. To raise awareness of their scholarship program and their work with the Second Harvest Food Bank, the CHHA also holds a celebrity race at the fair. The event brings in radio and TV celebrities to race in front of the grandstand full of cheering fans.

    RACETRACKS
    HARNESS RACING
    A harness race is a race involving people riding in sulkies behind horses. A sulky is a light, open two-wheeled vehicle accommodating only the driver that is drawn by a horse. Pacers, on the other hand, move their legs on one side of their body in tandem: left front and rear, and right front and rear. This action shows why pacers are often called "sidewheelers." Pacers account for about 80% of the participants in harness racing, and are aided in maintaining their gait by plastic loops called hobbles, which keep their legs moving in synchronization. Trotters are more popular in Europe while pacers are more popular the North America. The Standardbred is the fastest horse in harness, and is the most popular trotting / pacing breed. The standardbred horse was founded on Messenger, a thoroughbred that was imported from England in 1788. However, he didn't race in harness. The foundation sire was an in-bred descendent of Messenger named Hambletonian 10 who was foaled in 1849. The first harness races were held along city roads, with men challenging their friends to see who had the swifter steed. Often the streets of major cities were cleared and races held. Hence, so many American cities have a Race Street. Harness races later became a popular attraction at many county fairs.

    Creating A Harness Race Strategy
    Harness races are one of the best sources of entertainment for sports lovers and punters to try their luck all over the world. Punters wait patiently for these harness races to begin, when they can start making strategies for their betting as soon as the racing calendars for the year are declared. Punters who wish to make the winning bets need to prepare strategies for this type of racing. Any strategy which is made for a harness race is a little different from the strategies which are made during thoroughbred flat races. While making a strategy for betting in case of harness racing, it is best to remember that in these races the horses usually start racing at their slowest speed in the beginning. As soon as the race starts and picks up momentum, the horses start building up their speed and are at their top speed when they approach the final stages. Strategies are also made keeping in mind the distance over which the race is run. The shorter the race is the more important its early stages are and the longer the race is, the more crucial are its closing stages. Strategies need to be made keeping these factors in mind. Share:

    Harness Racing
    The difference between trotting and pacing is that a trotter moves its legs diagonally, right front and left hind, then left front and right hind striking the ground simultaneously, whereas a pacer moves its legs laterally, right front and right hind, then left front and left hind striking the ground simultaneously. In Europe races are conducted exclusively between trotters, whereas in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States races are also held for pacers. Pacing races constitute 80% to 90% of the harness races conducted in North America. The horses are faster and, most important to the bettor, less likely to break stride (a horse which starts to gallop must be slowed down and taken to the outside until it regains stride). One of the reasons pacers are less likely to break stride is that they often wear hopples or hobbles, straps which connect the legs on each of the horse's sides. The belief that hobbles are used to create this gait is a misconception. The pace is a natural gait, and hobbles are merely an accessory to support the pace at top speed. Most harness races start from behind a motorized starting gate. The horses line up behind a hinged gate mounted on a motor vehicle which then takes them to the starting line. At the starting line the wings of the gate are folded up and the vehicle accelerates away from the horses. The other kind of start to race is a standing start, where there are tapes across the track behind which the horses either stand stationary or trot in circles in pairs in a specific pattern to hit the starting line as a front. This enables handicaps to be placed on horses according to class with several tapes, usually with 20 meters in between. Some European, Australian and New Zealand races start using tapes.
