Top horses and drivers will compete for estimated purses over $90,000. Harness Racing has been a main attraction at many county fairs since the 1800's, when friends and neighbors would race to see who had the fastest horse. Originally run on city streets, these contests found a welcome home on fairgrounds as popularity grew. Experience the grand tradition at the Ottawa County Fair!
