Encyclopedia > Cane Pace

The Cane Pace is a harness horse race run annually since 1955. In 1956 the race joined with the Little Brown Jug and the Messenger Stakes to become the first leg in the Triple Crown of Harness Racing for Pacers.

Drivers, Stanley Dancer and John Campbell hold the record for the most Cane Pace wins with four each.

Currently the race is held at the Freehold Raceway in Freehold Borough, New Jersey. Established in 1853, Freehold Raceway is the oldest half-mile racetrack in the United States.
