He was the North America Cup champion and O'Brien Award winner more than two decades ago. He sired Canada's 1998 Horse of the Year. He was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame at the beginning of the millennium. But where is he now?

To kick off its new "Where Are They Now?" series, Standardbred Canada tracked down the now 26-year-old Apaches Fame for an update on the horse that brought a bus load of fans from rural Ontario to the 1990 North America Cup and proved to the world that Canadian-bred horses are among the best.

It's wonderful to know he's back at his home and is so well cared for. As a breeder/owner of one of his foals, it's nice to see he also passed on his speed and big heart.
He looks great and happy in his retirement.
Thanks Brittney for a heart warming story!
