It was a special afternoon at Inverness Raceway on Sunday as a pair of seasoned veterans made their way to the track for the final time in front of an appreciative hometown crowd.

Fourteen-year-old pacers G E Cams Freedom and Making It Big toured the Inverness oval for the final time on Sunday, and they both turned in solid performances in their final hurrahs.

G E Cams Freedom went coast-to-coast in his conditioned assignment, winning by a five-length margin in 2:01.4 for trainer Lloyd MacLean and driver Gary Delaney. It was the 64th lifetime victory for son of Camluck-Trefoil Freedom, who made 347 starts during his career. Sunday’s tally pushed his earnings over the $100,000 mark. He is owned by the Kom And Ahow Stable of Inverness, NS.

One race earlier, the 14-year-old gelding Making It Big finished third in what was the final start of his career. The pacer, who was the last son of the legendary Cam Fella to race in a pari-mutuel event, retired with 48 wins from 307 starts. Owned and trained by Lloyd MacLean of Inverness, NS, Making It Big banked just shy of $75,000.

Be sure to read the full feature on Making It Big, the last Cam Fella, in the October issue of Trot.
