Maritime Breeders Eliminations The tradition continues at Truro Raceway this weekend, featuring a jam-packed card of harness racing on Sunday afternoon. The Maritime Breeders Eliminations will attract an array of the finest two-year-old pacing colts and fillies lining up in several divisions of this prestigious fall stake.
