Chester, PA - Sunday, August 21 marks the fourth edition of Super Stakes Sunday at Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack, and once again, a rich card of Standardbred racing will be presented with over $2 million on the line in purses.  First post will be 2:00 p.m.

Top three-year-olds will square off in the Battle of the Brandywine, the Colonial, and the Valley Forge, once again the tri-featured events on the day's program.  The Battle of the Brandywine for pacing colts and geldings will go for a purse of $500,000, as will the Colonial for trotters.  Both of these races will also offer consolation events for $200,000 and $100,000.  As in past years, the eight horses entered with the highest seasonal earnings will race in the main event, with the eight next highest money earners this year in the second event, and the next eight in the third event.  Pacing fillies will contest the Valley Forge for a purse of $350,000.  Its consolation divisions will carry purses of $150,000 and $75,000.

In addition, the race office has carded the following races:
- 3-year-old Open Pace (PA sired preferred) - $60,000
