KITCHENER, ON - Harness racing driver Anthony Haughan triumphed as the tournament champion during the fourth and final edition of Barncat Trivia on May 29.

Since its launch on May 8, more than 650 players have competed against fellow harness racing enthusiasts in free, live virtual contests where 60 all-original multiple-choice questions are presented over three games (rounds).

Haughan won the first three legs of Barncat Trivia and entered the final week with 13,239 points. He finished second to Jason McGinnis in the final week, but maintained enough points to take the tournament crown.

The Cambridge, ON trainer/driver and partner Meg Crone operate an 11-horse barn at Classy Lane Stables in Puslinch, ON. Haughan joined the Barncat Trivia halftime show to chat about his boundless appetite for racing and how Irish winters in the '80s stocked his memory bank with harness racing history and factoids.
