On behalf of Standardbred owners and trainers who race in Ohio, I would like to thank the area counties who are members of the Home Talent Colt Stakes.
This is a difficult time for county fairs and Standardbred horse owners, and I hope you will continue to hold racing at your county fairs in the future. There are people who have participated in the county fair horse racing for many years and look forward to coming to your area to be a part of your entertainment.
