Charlie Russell stakes canceled at Kalispel

Due to an unseasonal rain all week at the Northwest Montana Fair, the Charlie Russell Futurity and Derby slotted to run the weekend of August 28 and 29 were both canceled. This is highly unfortunate, as the Charlie Russell Futurity traditionally carries the biggest race purse in the state of Montana.

Arrangements are in progress as to how to handle the nomination fees and expenses of these races for this year. Horsemen who nominated will be informed of the final decisions.
