Yes, at least the first time :) just take him, tie him where he can see the commotion, and maybe take him for a walk around the grounds. Show grounds are a lot of stimulus for any horse, but especially a young one. There are scents, sounds, feelings, and slights that are new to them, all in one. If the show is a two or three day event, you could possibly even take him the first day to watch and compete in a small class the next day!
Being an ex pacer he does have an advantage in that he might already be used to some of this, but I'd still be careful :)
