Per second on the track the horse that had the largest payout last year at The Horses At Evergreen Park was named Chasin Harm (in yellow left.

The five-year-old gelding earned over $1,000 per second for owner Delia Cross Child.

The total purse was $9,000 and the race was over 110 yards. It took Chasin Harm just 7.460 seconds to complete the run. The track record is 7.014 set by First Prize Sass in 2017.

On Sunday, six horses will be chasing that 7.014 record, and a cut of the $10,000 purse this year, in the 110 yard Grande Prairie Sprint – the shortest race of the season at J.D.A. Raceway.

It is Race 4 for set for a 2:30 p.m. post time.

Chasin Harm won’t be there to defend and of the six entered the Park Pick to win is Obsessed Bug.

There are seven races Saturday and another seven on Sunday at J.D.A. Raceway with 1:15 p.m. first posts.

Feature race for Saturday is the Marathon Series Leg 1 over a mile for a purse of $9,000.

Also Sunday is the Wiener Dog Derby. There will be semifinal heats after Race 2 and Race 3 and the final after Race 5. A costume contest will take place after Race 4 near the grandstand.

A fundraiser for Tiny Hands of Hope is being held via a 50/50. Anyone interested in supporting can purchase tickets online here or from one of the sellers at the Dog Derby on Sunday.
