For the 52nd consecutive season Goshen Historic Track will again offer matinee racing during the month of June. And these matinees can double as qualifying races.

Again this year the races will be offered on Sundays in June with the first program on June 2 followed by events on June 9 and June 16.
Entries can be made by calling Historic Track at 845.294.5333 or 845.294.5357 but be aware that the race office must receive entries prior to 11am on the Fridays before the actual matinees are to go to post.

However, prior to the month of June, and for the second consecutive year, Historic Track, along with the Mark Ford Training Center, will host the USTA Driving School from May 29 –June 2.
At Historic Track on Sunday June 2nd students from the driving school will get a chance to show what they’ve learned when they get to compete in a one mile harness race as part of the matinee program that day.

And the Clydesdales are coming.
On the dates of June 12-17 the world famous Budweiser horses will be stabled at Historic Track during their duration in the Cradle of the Trotter and they will perform on the race track on the matinee program  of Sunday, June 16.

Then the Grand Circuit races will get underway beginning on Thursday July 4th and continuing  through Sunday, July 7th.
Post times for the both the matinees in June  and the Grand Circuit races in early July will be at 1pm.
