The fourth annual “End of Meet Showcase” will be held at Presque Isle Downs Oct. 12, CANTER-Pennsylvania announced.

Approximately 40 horses will be available for purchase and their trainers will be on hand to answer questions. The track veterinarian will also be on site to provide pre-purchase exams. The event will be sponsored by Presque Isle Racetrack and Casino, the Pennsylvania HBPA and Wales Veterinary Practice.

“We welcome the opportunity to once again be selected as a location for the CANTER-PA event to help find great homes for our retiring racehorses,” Kevin O’Sullivan, Vice President and General Manager for Presque Isle Downs and Casino, said. “We support the mission statement of the CANTER-PA program, which is focused upon creating a bridge between the racehorse industry and the placement of ex-racehorses into quality sport and pleasure homes.”
