For the second year in a row, the Greene County Fair is hosting a major horse-racing event.

The Downstate Classic for two and three-year-old harness-racing horses will be held next Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Carrollton.

There are four divisions of horses that will race for an estimated $16-thousand each, according to the online website Harness Link. Those divisions are colt pace, colt trot, filly pace, and filly trot.

There will also be a race for horses four years of age and older sponsored by the Illinois Department of Agriculture; the purse for that race will be $7,000.

The Greene County Fair, in its 162nd year, will run from Saturday to June 27th.
