Northfield, OH --- The $150,000 Jay Auto Group Cleveland Classic, Northfield Park’s richest stakes event, is scheduled for this Saturday (Dec. 10.)

The 22nd edition of the Classic is the last national stakes event of the year for 3-year-old pacers. The Classic draws an impressive slate of equine athletes as well as North America’s top drivers. Entries are due by 9 a.m. on Wednesday (Dec. 7).

This year’s Cleveland Classic probables include Audreys Dream, Mystic Desire, Something For Doc and Southwind Milo. There are other contenders that are still considering entering the prestigious race, and horses can supplement their way into the field.
