Sackville Downs

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.

Stymest Resigns

Stymest Resigns From Truro Raceway Board

Truro Raceway Chairman Anthony Stymest has tendered his resignation, effective immediately, from the Truro Raceway Board of Directors.

Stymest tendered his resignation after Truro Raceway received notification on Tuesday that its application was denied for a Judicial Review seeking to overturn a decision by the Atlantic Harness Racing Commission (APHRC) last December, in relation to Home Market Area boundaries for telephone account betting (HPIbet) within Nova Scotia.   

“It has been my pleasure to serve on the board since 2018. However, with the recent court decision, I am no longer able to commit my volunteer time," said Stymest. "I wish the organization only the best in the future.”
