Truro Raceway to host “Remembering Sackville Downs” Day

Truro Raceway is pleased to announce that on Sunday, September 15th they’ll be hosting a very special race day, honouring the former Sackville Downs racetrack, which was in operation from 1955 to 1986 - with lots of festivities to recognize its rich history.

The racetrack is striking an organizing committee, who will manage the event, but expected to be among the festivities will be a large display of memorabilia and mementos from the former Sackville Downs, a race with all former Sackville Downs drivers participating and the opportunity to sponsor a race in honour of someone formerly connected to Sackville Downs. 

“We’re pleased to be able to honour a racetrack that meant a great deal to people in our region and across the Maritimes. There is no doubt that people have fond recollections of the former Sackville Downs and miss its presence in the HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality) region. We’re looking forward to remembering the many good times and people of that time.” said Truro Raceway General Manager Steve Fitzsimmons.

If anyone has artifacts or memorabilia that they would be willing to loan to the committee to put on display for the event, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
