Want to learn more about handicapping?
Inside Harness is a website created where the Drivers & Trainers can directly help the Harness Racing industry by helping introduce our great sport to the next generation of handicappers. Started Canada , but 2 weeks into launching InsideHarness the Covid lock down hit so the US Tracks were initiated with the idea.
We help the drivers and trainers provide almost real-time information that is delivered to the digital generation. InsideHarness is easy for the younger generation to understand while enhancing the hard core handicappers current methods.
We have over 380 industry people signed up including top trainers like Nancy Takter, Blake Macintosh and Tim Twaddle, along with top drivers Jody Jamieson, Corey Callahan, Chris Page and many more.
The Century Downs driving and training colony has really stepped up as we have some of the ASHA membership already signed up.
