SC’s 'I Love Canadian Harness Racing’ Fan Club Team and hundreds of members enjoyed a fantastic evening at Woodbine Racetrack on Breeders Crown night. The racing was world class and the Fan Club was out in full force to support San Pail in his successful bid to add a coveted Breeders Crown to his impressive list of accomplishments.

The seven-year-old son of San Pellegrino now has now recorded 14 wins and two second-place finishes from 16 races this season and is just shy of $3 million in career earnings for owner-breeder Glenn Van Camp and owner-trainer Rod Hughes.

The Breeders Crown Open Trot was just one of the highlights from the evening which featured all 12 Crown championships --- something which was taking place for the first time at a Canadian racetrack.

The I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club’s Faces of Racing enjoyed an incredible night. Driver Jody Jamieson scored a Breeders Crown double, as he guided Frenchfrysnvinegar to victory in the Mare Trot and then returned to the winner’s circle with Monkey On My Wheel in the Three-Year-Old Filly Pace. Prior to the filly event, pilot Randy Waples had teamed up with super trotter San Pail for a popular win the Open Trot.

Mark MacDonald and Casie Coleman teamed up for a win with Betterthancheddar in the three-year-old pacing colt division.
