The Pony Races


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Cleveland County Fair pony races have been run since the fair's inception in 1923, and continue to be run today. Although racing in Charlotte and Raleigh died out, Cleveland County racing is spurred on by today's competitors, children of former jockeys. Three races are held on each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of the week-long fair, and prizes are given for the first three places.
