The inaugural Coalition Stakes, to be run on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the Timonium race meet at the Maryland State Fair, closed with 43 nominations.

The $75,000 guaranteed stakes - with a potential purse of $110,000 - is for 3-year-olds and up going 6 1/2 furlongs. 

“This year, horsemen are running for ‘real Maryland money’ at our race meet,” says Bill Reightler, Race Meet Coordinator and board member of the Maryland State Fair and Agricultural Society. “Our purses are running very close to parity with Laurel Park's purses, with a 16 percent increase over 2016. The purses and the value of the stakes race are the highest we have had in our 137-year history.”

The $75,000 purse is augmented with an additional $25,000 for Maryland-bred/Maryland-sired runners, and $10,000 bonus to the winner if a Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Sales graduate.

The Timonium race meet begins Friday, Aug. 25 and runs Friday, Saturday and Sundays up to and including Labor Day. Daily post time is 1:05.
