ELORA, ON ­- Kelly Waterhouse triumphed in Grand River Raceway's first annual Media Race, staged on June 6 - the track's first Fun & Frivolity Friday Night of the 2014 live racing season.

Waterhouse and three fellow local media personalities were paired with professional drivers and took to the track for the half-mile exhibition race in custom-made two-person jog carts.

"It was amazing - just incredible!" Waterhouse buzzed in the winner's circle. "Everyone should have the chance to do this!"

The News Director at 92.9FM The Grand in Elora, Waterhouse said she's long dreamed of driving a racehorse. Her win came aboard Echos Black Dress, with the assistance of driver Bobby McClure.

Wellington Advertiser reporter Meagan Leonard finished second with Callie Magoo and driver Robert Shepherd.

Randy Steinman, Sports Director at CTV Kitchener, picked up third with Killean Sweep and reinsman Bruce Richardson.

Simon McGhee from 107.5 DAVE FM rounded out the field of media celebs with Hollywood Ham and Paul Mackenzie.

Live racing continues Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights all summer. Post time is 6:30 p.m.
