The live Standardbred Season kicks off on Saturday, November 21, 2020 and continues every Friday and Saturday night at 6:15 pm PST for 44 racing dates, culminating on Saturday, April 24, 2021.

The popular ‘New Horse Incentive Program’ features a two-tiered structure that provides up to $1,050 to owners/trainers racing at CalExpo Harness.

There is also a ‘Returning Horse Incentive Program’ with the potential to earn $650 per horse for those that have already taken advantage of the great weather and enticing purse structure of the capitol city oval.

In addition, the purse structure has remained strong due to the increased interest in our racing product and benefits to the purse account realized from contributions by ADW’s. The top purse is $7,200 for the Open 1 and high-level claimers go for nearly $6,000.

We hope that you will consider stabling at CalExpo Harness for the 2020-21 meet. For more information, please contact Chris Schick at the Email or Phone number listed above.
