The nine-year-old son of Blissfull Hall wired a three-horse field to remain unbeaten this year for driver Dr. Mitchell Downey and trainer/owner Michael Downey. Fall Bliss has now won 36 races lifetime, including 11 of his 21 starts during his award-winning 2016 campaign.

The New Brunswick Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association would like to thank the Board of Directors of the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission for allowing a motion to race smaller fields until the horse population grows, making it possible to keep bringing the fans to the track for the action, proven by another great crowd this past Saturday.
