On Sunday, August 5, 2012 the National Capital Region Harness Horse Association in conjunction with Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre is presenting its fifth annual Night of Champions.
There are numerous fundraising activities during the evening with all proceeds supporting the Shepherds of Good Hope. The night will be featuring Memorial races honouring some of the Ottawa Valleys racing pioneers.
In addition, there will be three non-betting Future Stars races as well as a Trot Under Saddle. Once again this year, the main event on the card is the Coville Cup Drivers Challenge.
Fifteen races will be held featuring up and coming drivers. This driver tournament showcases young drivers who are trying to further their driving careers but have yet to drive an abundance of horses. The tournament drivers are as follows:
Daniel St. Pierre
Maxime Robinson Desjardins
The NCRHHA would like to thank all the applicants for taking the time to submit their applications for the Coville Cup.
