Administrative history

Sackville Downs Raceway was a harness racing race-track in Sackville, Nova Scotia from 1954-1985. It was operated by the Cruickshank family - B.C., John T., Jack). Events were held at least twice weekly through the summer and on fall holiday weekends.

Custodial history

Programs were donated to the Nova Scotia Sport Heritage Centre by Raceway General Manager Jack Cruickshank in 1994; the re-named Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame donated them to HRM Archives in 2012.

Scope and content

Collection consists of bound volumes of the official programs from harness races at Sackville Downs Raceway. These are the Raceway's copies so race and betting results are annotated in the programs, and some years have annotations of the season's results: purses paid, pari-mutuel wagering, attendance; fastest horse, etc.
