A loyal racing fan for over three decades, Michael 'Iron Mike' McComish has his entire family looking to him for a victory in the $25,000 Trot Canada National Handicapping Championship after a promise to treat them to a trip to Disney World should he win


McComish, an accounting administrator from Brampton, Ont., earned his place in the championship via a qualifying event at Flamboro Downs --- and he is no novice when it comes to handicapping challenges. Last year, McComish cashed over $3,000 in a Woodbine Extreme event.

Here’s what we know about McComish.

When asked who his big screen twin would be, Fred Flintstone was Michael’s unexpected reply! “He has great friends and family and he loves to 'bet, bet, bet!!!'

Will the Flintstone clan, or rather, the McComish family, meet Mickey Mouse over winter break? We’ll have to wait and see!
