The condition sheet for Ohio’s Super Night (Saturday, Sept 7) at Scioto Downs Racino is now available. All told, the purses on the card will total around $1.5-million and attract the best horses in the state as well as some phenomenal horses from across the country.
Anchoring the card will be the eight divisional Ohio Sire Stakes Finals with purses of $150,000 each. Tied into these races will be a special $7,500 guaranteed Pick-8 bet where bettors can wager on who they think will win all eight of the OSS Finals for a minimum 20-cent bet.
Highlighting the undercard is the $125,000 Jim Ewart Memorial Invitational Pace. Being the largest overnight race purse in Scioto’s racing history, the race office is hoping to attract some of the country’s best older pacers. It will be tied into the late Pick-4 bet which will also include the last three OSS races.
The race office has also carded the Heart of Ohio Trot and Capitol City Pace finals, with estimated purses of $50,000 each. The events for 4-year-old and up winners over $60,000 have separate divisions for trotters and pacers.
The condition sheet is available on this page (http://www.sciotodowns.com/racing/condition-sheets/) of the Scioto Downs website as well as under the “Horsemen” tab of the USTA website. If anyone is interested in more information on entering the Jim Ewart Memorial Pace, contact the race office at (614) 295-4668.
Before the races start on Super Night there will be a meet-n-greet with some of Scioto’s leading drivers as well as driver interviews and t-shirt tosses after each race. In cooperation with the Ohio Lottery, there will be a hat given away with the purchase of a live racing program.
