Maritimes Fractional Ownership Reloads

After having notched a pair of February victories at The Raceway at Western Fair District, an eight-year-old mare will now be doing what she can to help create interest in the fractional ownership game in the Maritimes.

Officials with Truro Raceway have announced that Lady Lakeshore is one of two Standardbreds that will be racing for the Hubtown Horse Owners Club this year. Lady Lakeshore, who is an eight-year-old daughter of Jeremes Jet, has won five of her 19 career starts and has hit the board on 11 occasions.

After its inaugural season in 2019, Truro Raceway’s Hubtown Horse Owners Club is returning for the 2020 racing season. The club offers an avenue for prospective and returning racehorse owners to join the ownership club for a fraction of what it would normally cost to own a Standardbred racehorse. Memberships for the 2020 season are now available, and both new and returning members are welcome. Contact Truro Raceway Manager Kelly MacEachen ([email protected]) for membership details.

In announcing the initiative in 2019, MacEachen stated, “I’ve come to the realization that unless you have a connection to harness racing, there is no easy way to get involved, so we created this club to do just that by making it affordable and easy to become a horse owner.”

Members of the Hubtown Horse Owners Club share in the ownership of two Standardbreds purchased by Truro Raceway. A one-time membership fee helps cover the cost of training and stabling at the raceway. If the horses make any money after training and expenses, the members of the Hubtown Horse Owners Club shares in the profits.
