The winner of the race, which will be sponsored by Mary and Peter Grandich of Freehold, N.J., will receive a special Irish race blanket and trophy.
“As a harness owner and racing fan, I’m honored to be sponsoring the St. Paddy Pace,” said Peter Grandich. “My wife, Mary, was born and raised in Ireland and we were married there, so I have a deep connection to the Irish people and culture. I’m looking forward to this “green” day at the races.”
The drivers scheduled to participate in the race are George Brennan, “Irish” Joe Hanney, Anthony Haughan, Mike Whelan, Jim Marohn Jr., Robert Bresnahan Jr., Jim Marshall III and Kyle Husted.
