Anndrovette is a four-year-old mare by Riverboat King out of the mare Easy Miss by Big Towner. She has earned $596,753 in 2011. She was bred by Golden Touch Stable. She is owned by Jeff Bamond and Joe Davino, trained by Mark Kesmodel and Luc Ouellette was in the bike.

“If you’re going catch a catch drive at the last second this is the one you want. It was pretty easy, I just point her forward and she just did it on her own. If I could have I would have put Sylvan in behind me but we might have wasted a little time trying to do that, so I figured just let him go and come back.” Luc Ouellette said.

“Yeah you can say that again. If you’re going to pick up a catch at the last minute she’s the one you want to do it on.” Mark Kesmodel said.

“Yeah we purchased her at the meadowlands mix sale and she won the new York sire stakes races and she just keeps getting better and better. It’s my first trip to the breeders crown and I couldn’t be happier. I have done this for quite some time but never had anything like this. She’s a dream come true. It couldn’t be better.” Anndrovette’s owners said.
