Harness Racing Show and Tell

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

After years of covering the sport of harness racing, I decided it was time to give driving a try. I got in the bike at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs with the track's leading driver in 2011, Matt Kakaley.

He handed me the reigns and let me take the horse for a drive. While I expected my race around the track to be a slow one, it turns out my horse, Best Around, was wanting to run fast!

The ride gave me a rush, and I had a lot of fun. This is definitely a "Show and Tell" I would love to repeat!
