Harness racing at the fair

Warming up

Harness racing is part of the Great Frederick Fair. Last Tuesday when I took these shots the pacers were racing. The races are strictly exhibition and there is no pari-mutual betting. There were 10 races total for pacers and trotters over four days of the fair.

How fun! I am not a gambler so I would just love to go and watch.
