The USHWA Youth Membership Committee's series of monthly 2020 Racetrack Reviews keeps rolling, as more and more North American harness racing tracks are themselves resuming racing after precautionary COVID-19 closures.
 
Nicholas Barnsdale of Toronto, Ontario wrote the May Youth Racetrack Review about his favourite track, Woodbine Mohawk Park.
 
The son of Canadian USHWA chapter president Garnet Barnsdale is a lifelong racing fan.
 
He's a Humber College Bachelor of Journalism student who participates in the sport at many levels, from fractional racehorse ownership with TheStable.ca, to helping his USHWA chapter host a Somebeachsomewhere film fundraiser for Equine Guelph.
 
Last year, the 19-year-old writer, handicapper, and photographer was one of the students who took part in the Clyde Hirt Journalism Workshop at The Meadowlands. He is also an USHWA Youth member. 

The USHWA Youth Membership Committee welcomes inquiries from young racing fans and participants who would like to review their favourite or local harness track, focusing on what makes the track a youth- and family-friendly place.
 
We will be circulating a Racetrack Review every month of 2020.
 
Please contact USHWA Youth Membership Committee chair Melissa Keith for additional details and/or to apply to review a racetrack this year.
