When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and Standardbred racing across North America shut down, at Standardbred Canada it was decided that due to printing and mailing issues brought on by the pandemic, TROT Magazine would not print a May issue. We brought to you instead a digital ‘Twos In Training Report’ that was read more than 16,000 times, and we thank you for your patronage.

This month, for our June 1st publication, although racing in many parts of Canada and the U.S. has either begun again, or is scheduled to in the next few days, many things are still shut down across both countries, to the extent that it was decided we would move ahead with one more digital publication before looking to print a hardcopy of TROT for July 1st. So here it is, Standardbred Canada’s ‘The List Issue’ brought to you by your friends at TROT Magazine.

What, you may ask, is a ‘List Issue?’

With racing shut down for the past few months and our website writers continuing to do a great job covering the Coronavirus situation and related human interest stories, we decided to delve into racing’s plethora of statistics, and compile an issue full of interesting lists for you to read.

Horses, owners, breeders, trainers, drivers, sires, dams, Breeders Crown winners, and so on. The richest? The fastest? The most successful? Two-year-old lists, three-year-old lists, all-time lists, single season lists…

In some areas we were able to gather lists for all of history, whereas in others, due to certain IT limitations, we could only cover the last 30 years. All-in-all however, we think the lists are very interesting to read and something that you’ll enjoy. Who knows, you might even find your own name or your horse’s name on one of them!

We also reached out, for this issue, to 15 of Canada’s leading reinsmen, and asked them, after more than two months off, what they missed most about racing, and maybe what they had been taking for granted.

THANK YOU to the drivers that participated in the interviews, to Standardbred Canada’s IT Manager Janet Cookson, without whom this issue never could have happened, to our friends at the Hambletonian Society whose website came in very handy for our ‘Breeders Crown’ section, to our advertisers, for their continued support, and to our members and horsepeople everywhere for your readership.

It’s almost time to race again; please be safe out there. Here’s wishing you all good luck, and we’ll see you on July 1st with our next anticipated issue of TROT Magazine.

Kudos on very interesting issue! Stories abound on the p.35 list, most wins in one day by driver: Bruce Ranger drove 18 of 20 Florida Sunshine State stakes races on an NB event at PPk and won 13 and had a .772 UDR; George Nap had two afternoon Chester wins before scoring 11 at Pocono that night, equaling Dave Palone's p/m record -- and actually crossed the wire first 12 times that night but was placed for an LOB!; Bouchard won with his last three drives at Fhld that day (R9-10-13) then won the first 8 at YR that night to win 11 in a row, lost in the YR9 but then won the 10th; and Roger Hammer got his 11, the first to that figure, at the York (PA) Fair -- off of which he was invited to a driving tournament in Denmark, but he couldn't get his passport fast enough!
