Trot Insider has learned that 13-year-old Basin View Albert had to be euthanized earlier this week.

The son of Albert Albert was peacefully euthanized on Monday, June 8 due to medical complications.

The bay horse last raced in September of 2006 at Summerside Raceway. From 198 career starts, Basin View Albert compiled a very respectable 47-40-30 record, good for $88,244 in purses.

Basin View Albert took his 1:55.4 record over the half-mile Charlottetown Driving Park oval at age seven. The horse was owned by Alfred and Richard Wall of Kensington, PEI.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Basin View Albert.

BVA actually eptitomized for many of us what 'downhome' racing is all about. And what draws those of us, who have moved away, back to the Maritimes every summer. Look at that record and the years he lasted, as opposed to the throwaway, disposable horse culture you have in the fastbuck/claim'em and maim'em venues. This is what the sport of Harness Racing is all about. Rock on Albert!

Kent Oakes SAID...

Basin View Albert was one of the classiest and toughest horses to race in the Maritimes in recent memory.He must be the record holder for starts in the Governors Plate in Summerside, and he had many great battles with Igoddago over the years.

I know that he was a personal favorite of Alfred and Ricky and their families, and had a great fan following within PEI harness racing.
