Luck Be Withyou - The latest horse to be added to "The stable of horses that God loves"

The Stable of Horses That God Loves is rapidly growing in size and in stature.

The latest  headliner to join  John Fielding’s  2014 Dan Patch winner, Shake It Cerry  and 21 others, is  2014 Breeders Crown winner Luck Be Withyou, owned by Toronto horseman John Craig.

The speedy 4-year-old son of Western Ideal from the Bill Cass stable,  who  has amassed $696.291 in his career,  will  be looking to push his lifetime earnings over the million dollar mark  this season competing in  major stakes events in the U.S. and Canada, including the Canadian Pacing Derby,  Confederation Cup and the Prix d’ete.

Like all others in the Stable That God Loves, one per cent of  Luck Be Withyou’s 2015 purse  earnings will be returned to  Chaplain Ken Carter’s homeless  Standardbred Chaplaincy of Canada, dedicated to providing for the emotional, physical , spiritual, and human needs of the horse racing work  force in southwestern Ontario.

“It’s gratifying to see so much support coming from industry participants from all over, and it is extra exciting  to know the list of participants in the program  includes  Grand Circuit stars like Shake It Cerry and Luck Be Withyou”  said WEG race announcer and Chaplaincy director Ken Middleton.  “ Having these horses on board  will create  huge exposure for the program and for the sport in general.  It is heart-warming  to  see  so many  people recognize  and support the work that the Chaplaincy is doing for the sport’s participants”.

Stables large and small have named  their stable stars to the Stable That God Loves, and some horsemen have given their entire stable,  a gesture that speaks volumes for their huge  support of the program.

“All owners should support the less fortunate in our industry.    Every horse that Canamerica Corp and Hyatt Holdings, Inc.,  races  in 2015 will be participants in the program.” said Milton, Ontario  horseman Mark Hyatt, whose late father, Doug, was a tireless worker for the  homeless Chaplaincy.
