Spring Matinee Races at Pinehurst Harness Track



  • Brenda Komers

    Pinehurst NC 28374


Harness racing horses are of two distinct varieties, differentiated by their gait: the pacing horse, or pacer, which moves both legs on one side of its body at the same time; and the trotting horse, or trotter, strides with its left front and right rear leg moving forward simultaneously, then right front and left rear together. Feeling the pounding of hooves and seeing the power of the equine athletes turns many first observers into lifelong fans. Check it out for yourself!

Opening Ceremonies are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. with the first of eight races scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Bleacher seating will be available for general admission and food and beverages will be available for purchase. Admission is $5.00 per person (12 & under are free) and gates will open at 11:00 a.m. for parking.

Admission: $5.00
