Eleven years ago (on May 5, 2008, to be exact), Somebeachsomewhere qualified at Mohawk Racetrack to start his sophomore campaign. On May 4, 2019, a group of his admirers gathered to share an exclusive film fundraiser celebrating the late pacer's life and career.

Somebeachsomewhere: Horse of a Lifetime’ premiered on Eastlink Community TV earlier this year, and received glowing reviews.

Around 30 fans of the Schooner Stable's star enjoyed a one-time-only viewing of the film Saturday at Mohawk Inn and Conference Centre in Milton, Ont.

Ontario Veterinary College Dean Dr. Jeff Wichtel and Equine Guelph Director Gayle Ecker attended and introduced the screening, which raised $1,100 in donations and sponsorships.

Ron Mervis, Eastlink Regional Manager for Southern Ontario, and Brian Tropea, OHHA General Manager, also gave opening remarks.

Driver Paul MacDonell answered audience questions after the film and generously signed autographs until his departure to drive in Race 1 at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
