HAMBURG, N.Y. — The main event on Wednesday’s opening card at Buffalo Raceway on The Fairgrounds in Hamburg, NY will have a six horse field battling in the $12,500 Open II-III Pace for the filly and mares. Fade To Gold is tabbed the 8-5 morning line choice.
Opening night will feature a $3,000 guaranteed Pick-5 pool thanks to the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering Program, the Western New York Harness Horsemen’s Association and Buffalo Raceway. The sequence begins in the second race.
Gerry Sarama, the leading trainer at Buffalo Raceway in 2021 with 63 wins, looks to get off to a fast start in 2022 as he will send five to the gate on the program.
Kevin Cummings, who was second in driving victories last year with 77, will see plenty of action to begin the campaign as he is slated to drive in all eight events.
The opening week continues Saturday (Jan. 29) with the return of the Lucky Exacta contest. All fans will receive a limited edition, etched, frosted Buffalo Raceway pint glass which will have an exacta combination. Should that exacta come in between the designated races, fans will be able to spin the prize wheel with a chance to win anywhere from $10 to $100 in free wagers on the last race of the evening.
First post is 6 pm both Friday and Saturday.
