Charity Night at the Races

2024 Charity Night Events were held June 8, 2024 at MGM Northfield and Junne 14, 2024 at Caesars Scioto Downs.

Ohio Horsemen Give Back

Ohio's Harness Horsemen have donated more than $614,000 to local charities since 2017


Each year Ohio Horsemen give back by hosting Charity Night. Up to twenty charities are invited to participate as honorary owners of a standardbred racehorse. Each charity receives a donation based upon their horse's official order of finish. The charities enjoy a complimentary dinner, rides in the starting gate, and a visit to their horse in the paddock before the race. The charities provide information about their misson via broadast interviews and ultimately cheer their horse on during the race from the winner's circle.

If your charity would like more information regarding charity night contact us. Any OHHA members interested in learning more about the event or volunteering to help contact us. E-mail, info@ohha.com or call us at 614-221-3650.
