The center of attention this week will be on the ICF 3-year-old divisions of both sexes and gaits.

With the third legs of the Night of Champions stake series coming up on the weekend, we will have passed the half-way point to determine the 10 finalists in each ICF stake championship.

The Robert F. Carey Memorial series for sophomore pacing colts and geldings will head up Friday’s program, while the second season state-bred filly pacers will tangle in round three of the Plum Peachy on Saturday.

Sunday’s card is highlighted by both Dygert Memorial trotting events, the Beulah Dygert for fillies and the Erwin F. Dygert for colts and geldings.

Stake series points are determined by the order of finish in each leg with 50 awarded for first, 25 for second, 12 for third, 8 for fourth, 5 for fifth and 1 for starting. The 10 highest point earners after four rounds, earn a berth in their respective championship field.
