Harness horse racing tradition continues at Canfield Fair

September 2, 2019


Harness horse races will be held Saturday and Monday at the fair. Many owners stable their horses and train them at the fair grounds year round. The races are a popular part of the fair… even for people who don’t bet on the results. [B10]20190824 CAN FAIR SUN-SV Groom Cindy Colagiovanni, Salem: “IT’S FOR THE OWNERS. IT’S FOR THE GROOM, WHICH IS WHAT I DO. IT’S FOR THE TRAINER, IT’S FOR THE PUBLIC. BECAUSE THE PUBLIC GETS TO ENJOY IT. IT’S NOT JUST GAMBLING. TO WATCH THEM, IT’S A LOT OF FUN.” The horse she is grooming is named Peter Trottin-Tail. He’ll race on Labor Day.
