It was a day nothing short of Legendary. 12 Hall of fame drivers descended on small town Clinton, Ontario to bring together thousands of race fans for a Sunday afternoon in support of the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation.
With a record handle of $48,900 and a crowd twenty deep at the wire, this is what harness racing is all about.
Ray Remmen and The Northern Dude captured the $15,000 Legends Day invitational trot in true legendary fashion with a gate to wire finish and a new track record of 1:59.
This was Remmens’ first Legends Day win, and by the smile on his face, it was well worth the wait. Ron Waples and Amigo Loco were not far behind for second and Cimeronken driven by Bill O’Donnell rounded out the triactor.
