SATURDAY August 5th, 2017.  Doors 5:00pm  POST TIME  6:15pm

Hanover Raceway’s biggest event of the season is Dream of Glory day.   Named after the late Hall of Fame stallion, Dream of Glory was also an excellent race horse being named the USTA champion at ages 3, 4 and 5, but his owner failed to enter him into the biggest stakes including the Hambletonian and the Kentucky Futurity saying he was more focussed on his Dairy business than his excellent Standardbred.

Regardless Dream of Glory went on to a prestigious Stud career with Armstrong Brothers of Ontario, and produced thousands of offspring that have earned over 48 million dollars in purse monies, including 144 winners of at least 100,000 dollars.  Dream of Glory died in 1992 at the age of 21.

Hanover Raceway pays tribute to the late stallion with its 3 year old stake race which is held on the August Civic Holiday weekend.

Activities this year will fall on Saturday August 5, 2017.  We anticipate close to 5,000 fans to attend and will have special activities for those in attendance.

Race Doors open at 5:00pm

Hanover Rotary will be running the Rooftop BBQ and we’ll have The Crippled Ducks live band as well.

Live Racing including the OSS 3 year old Colt Pace will start at 6:15pm

Hanover Fall Fair Ambassadors and the Grey Bruce Alzheimer Society will be on site.

Hanover Barons will be doing a blanket presentation.

Huge Fireworks display by BEM Fireworks will take place 20 minutes after the last race.
