History was made at Grand River Raceway on Tuesday night when Dawn Lupul became the first woman to announce a card of harness racing in Canada.

The standardbred combatants in the first race gave Lupul a test right off the bat with a tight photo finish, and emerging victorious was NF Rivertown and trainer-driver Roger Mayotte.

I just wanted to say 'thank you' to everyone for all of the wonderful comments. It was a nerve-wracking experience for me but I got through it and will keep on practicing in hopes of trying again someday.

And kudos to all of the announcers out there - it is way tougher than it sounds!!

I am not surprised at all! With your experience as T V host on many big races in Western Canada combined with your thorough knowledge of the industry as owner, breeder, and trainer it had to be a slam dunk! Congratulations.

I caught a couple of races last night and was impressed. I sure hope this won't be a one time thing. No doubt the first night brought some nerves, but the skill is definitely there. Well done Dawn
