Scratch Time/Driver Change

Scratch time for your race is 8:00-9:00am the day following the draw for your race.Drivers are required to review entries for driving assignments and call the stewards at (313) 564-5397 (Ext. 1) for race scratches or driver changes. In the event the driver you selected is listed on two or more horses in the same race, the driver will call the stewards to inform them of which horse they are choosing to drive. If a driver chooses another horse you will be assigned your alternate choice (if you gave one at the time you entered your horse) if that driver is available.

If you have not indicated an alternate driver while entering, the stewards will assign your horse an available driver unless you have called prior to the 8:00am to inform them otherwise.
