Business-sponsored race 
is a first for Fraser Downs

Capo Construction puts up $2,500 sponsorship in Sunday afternoon’s featured harness race at Fraser Downs in Cloverdale.

Fraser Downs will host its first community business-sponsored race on Sunday

This Sunday marks the debut of a new kind of harness race at Fraser Downs.

It’s a 1 5/8 mile feature race sponsored by a community business – Capo Construction – in what’s hoped to be the first of a series of partnerships of this kind promoting the sport of harness racing.

The featured race, taking place Feb. 22, at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino, is projected to go for a purse estimated at $5,000 – when Capo’s $2,500 sponsorship is combined with Harness Racing B.C.’s purse moneys are factored in.

The 1 5/8 mile race – twice around the track – will feature a 10-horse field, battling it out over a challenging distance to claim the title.

The race is a partnership between Harness Racing B.C., the association representing breeders, owners, drivers and trainers; along with and sponsors Fraser Downs and Capo Construction.

The association is excited by the potential of attracting more businesses and individuals to the harness racing industry, and HRBC says it’s open to welcoming other community businesses to consider sponsoring a race or otherwise getting involved.

Harness Racing is a passion for Capo Construction, which has been in the construction industry for more than 25 years, and recognizes the importance of the harness racing industry to the business community.
