This Saturday marks the highlight of the Hanover Raceway harness racing season as the track plays host to the 15th annual Dream of Glory Trot. GM Gord Dougan says Not only is the field outstanding, it is probably one of the toughest Dream of Glory finals to handicap. Dougan says first elimination winner Wildwildmen drew post 4, and the second elimination winner, Smoke Monkey drew post 7. Dougan says both eliminations finished in 1:58 and change, and the field includes some local interests and 2 trainers with their names already on the Dream of Glory Trophy. Peter and Curtis Clements of Dobbinton each have a horse in the final, and trainers John Bax and Keith Jones know what it’s like to win the final.   Jones won the first ever Dream of Glory Trot with Abbey Road C who went on to win over $2,000,000 in purse money.  Bax meanwhile is nationally known as a top Trot producer and has won the Dream of Glory title 3 times in the past.   Jones has 2 horses in the final, Pukka drew post 5, while Chestnut Schofield has post 6.  Bax meanwhile has teamed up with 4 time Dream of Glory winning driver Steve Byron on Very Classy who drew post 2.  Local fans will be cheering for PC Foreign Affair who drew post 1 for Curtis and Amy Clements and PC Cantore who drew post 3 for father Peter Clements. Not only will the $67,500 dollar final be one to watch, Hanover also has 5 divisions of 3 year old Colt pacers competing in the Ontario Sires Stakes. 5 of the top 10 Grassroots leading Colts are taking part including leader Continual Hanover in Race 8.   The 3 year old Bettors Delight son is owned by Jack Darling of Cambridge and won his last start at Mohawk in 1:52.  Derecho has 2 wins in 4 starts this season. The horse who finished 2nd in that race was Derecho, owned in part by Dustin Jones of Waterdown.  Despite starting from post 10, this 3 year old gelded son of Big Jim finished in 1:52.1 and should be a favorite in Race 4 where he gets post relief in the form of the 3 hole. Other top Grassroots colts include Perseverant who is 5th in the standings, Spirit Shadow who won his only start in the OSS on June 16th but has 5 wins in 11 starts in his first season of racing, and is 6th in points, and Flaherty who starts from Post 7, but has already earned his ownership group over $80,000 dollars this year. Flaherty is owned by the Macks stable and Joe Carnovale of Stoney Creek, and Bill Budd of Waterdown.  This gelded son of Up the Credit won his last start at Mohawk in 1:52.4 and was 3rd in an OSS Gold event back in May in London in 1:52.4. Dream of Glory day includes a Beef BBQ, live band and huge fireworks display after the races.   Dougan is expecting a crowd upwards of 4,000 fans to attend, including some off duty Hanover Fire Personell, as well as members of the Hanover Curling Club and Hanover Police departments to help out.  Post time is 6:15pm.

It was the biggest harness racing crowd of the season on perhaps the hottest night of the year, as Hanover Raceway hosted two eliminations in the Dream of Glory Trot. Sixteen horses competed hoping for a top four spot in order to qualify for the July 30th final. In the first elimination Wildwild Men used the rail position to his advantage hitting the quarter with a 5 length lead in 28 seconds flat.  The 3 year old son of Muscle Mass is co-owned by Catheline Pelletier, Chantal Gravel of Quebec and came into Hanover after back to back wins at Trois Rivieres Raceway.  Robert Shepherd drove the gelding wire to wire, with times of 1:00, 1:29.3 and the mile in 1:58.4. P C Cantore owned and trained by Peter Clements of Dobbinton was second, with a pair of Keith Jones trainees, Pukka and Chestnut Schofield finishing third and fourth. In the second elimination, heavy favorite Sass coming off a 1:53 mile at Mohawk, broke before the start and Smoke Monkey owned by Synerco Ventures of Toronto grabbed the first quarter lead in 29.1.   Bruce Richardson drove the Majestic Son colt wire to wire with times of 59.4, 1:28.4 and the mile in 1:58.2. Gonna Fly starting from post 8 managed to manoeuvre around Sass and finished second for Robert Mcintosh and Earl Hill Jr. of Oshweken, while PC Foreign Affair was third for Curtis Clements of Dobbinton, and Very Classy finished fourth for part owner and trainer John Bax of Campbellville. It was a busy night with fans taking part in the Wanna Drive program, and I love Canadian Harness Racing was on hand with prize draws and information.   Hanover also played host to former NHL great Keith Primeau and Connor Roberts of Owen Sound who was drafted third overall by the Hamilton Bulldogs of the OHL.  The two men signed autographs and helped assign the post positions for the 8 Dream of Glory Qualifiers. Dream of Glory day will include a Beef on a Bun BBQ at 5:00pm, a live band, and after the races a huge BEM Fireworks display.   Post time next Saturday is 6:15pm and the doors open at 5:00.  Hanover is expecting close to 4,000 fans to attend. Below is the results of the Post position draw for the estimated $77,000 dollar Dream of Glory Final.  PC Foreign Affair  Very Classy  PC Cantore  Wildwild Men Pukka Chestnut Schofield Smoke Monkey Gonna Fly  AE1.   Zagster AE2.  Major Muscle

JULY 14, 2016 - Two-year-old pacing fillies take centre stage at Clinton Raceway on Sunday as the Ontario Sires Stakes program makes the first of three stops at the half-mile oval. Trainer Gregg McNair will harness two fillies in the Grassroots contest, and Loves Angel has already tested her skills over the Clinton surface. "I qualified them about a week earlier than we normally do so I was kind of looking for a race for her," explained the trainer. "I knew she was going to race there, so I thought I'd just see how she got around the place." In spite of competing against a group of older fillies and mares, and starting from the outside Post 7, Loves Angel finished second in the June 26 test. The filly's next start came in the July 8 Grassroots opener at Mohawk Racetrack where she led for most of the mile before fading to eighth in the stretch. "She really didn't race that good. We were kind of disappointed in her, but we've had some sickness going through our barn," explained McNair, adding that the filly seems to have bounced back from her bout of sickness and should be back on form for Sunday's test. "She trained down good, she's a good bred mare too," noted McNair, who purchased the half-sister to $292,179 Sir Lehigh Z Tam from the 2015 Harrisburg Yearling Sale for $20,000. "She's on the small side, but she done everything pretty good all winter." The Guelph, ON resident shares ownership of Loves Angel with Jim Newton of Thornhill, ON and Kenneth Newton of Biggar, SK. McNair's son Doug will steer the filly from Post 6 in the first $18,000 Grassroots division. McNair's second entry, Shewearsthepants, will start from Post 3 in the second division. A recent arrival in Ontario, the Big Jim daughter was sent to McNair from Pennsylvania-based trainer Roly Mallar. "I asked him how she'd be in Clinton, and he said he always trains over a half. He said it shouldn't be a big problem with her," says McNair, who will get his first good look at the filly's ability on Sunday. "She's flighty enough, she'll likely be worked up fairly good there Sunday, so I hope she does all right. Time wise she looks like she's got enough speed to maybe contend with them." Before shipping north Shewearsthepants clocked a 1:55.1 mile in a July 8 two-year-old event at The Meadowlands. Anatolia Farm LLC of New Holland, PA bred and owns Shewearsthepants, a half-sister to $136,164 winner Gymokee Jerry. Fans can get involved in Sunday's Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS) action by entering the "Be A Winner" contest. One finalist will be selected from each of the "Be A Winner" ballot boxes representing the horses in the contest race. Finalists receive an OSS t-shirt, ball hat, and lanyard badge along with a $15 win-place-show wager on their selected horse, and will gather trackside to cheer home their chosen filly. The finalist representing the winning filly will join her connections in the winner's circle celebrations and receive a trophy, an OSS jacket and golf shirt, a commemorative photo and a $50 wagering voucher. In addition to playing the "Be A Winner" contest and watching the freshman fillies battle in Grassroots action, fans can also enjoy the barbecue and bake sale being hosted by the major atom and major peewee Huron Perth Lakers. The Huron Perth Lakers Day at the Races also features a raffle and 50-50 draw. The first race on Clinton Raceway's action-packed Sunday afternoon program goes behind the starting gate at 1:30 pm and the two-year-old pacing fillies will star in Races 2, 6 and 9.
