65th Annual Spring Matinee Harness Races | Pinehurst NC

The 65th annual Spring Matinee Races, sponsored by the Pinehurst Parks and Recreation Department and the Pinehurst Driving and Training Club, was held last Sunday at the Pinehurst Harness Track.   A crowd of 4,000+ gathered around for pre-race tailgating and race day fun.

Opening ceremonies kicked the day off at 1 p.m., followed by eight races involving Standardbred trotters and pacers that train at the track over the course of the winter.

I was honored to be invited to this exciting racing event by a friend and her horse-racing soul mate who just happened to win both of his races!
