We’re usually pretty aware of who the people are that win the Hambletonian or the North America Cup. The big wins make all the news and that’s probably how it should be. There are however, many happy moments in our sport that happen away from the limelight as well. The joy our horses can bring us probably can’t even be described to people that haven’t experienced it for themselves. That’s why, for the third straight year, we’ve asked you to share your ‘Fond Memories’ of the year prior with us. We’re very proud to tell your stories, we’re certain people will enjoy them, and we thank everyone that submitted them. Compiled by John Rallis & Dan Fisher.
