#HORSERACING: BREEDERS CROWN 2015 HIGHLIGHTS
It isn’t every year that Woodbine gets to host the richest, most prestigious night in Harness Racing, so we were incredibly lucky to be home to the 12 races totaling $6 million this year. These races often have a strong bearing on which horses will go on to be crowned champion year-end.
The best in the sport gathered for a shot at the huge purse money and the biggest winner tonight was driver Dave Miller who topped the night with a whopping five Breeders Crown wins tonight. Neither rain nor lightning could stop his A-Game.
Lucky fans were rewarded with $100 Betting Vouchers, while some where rewarded with limited edition collectible figurines of all-time richest standardbred of all time, the remarkable Foiled Again, who competed last night. Official Breeders Crown toques and free first bets also were handed out.
Winners of the evening were as follows:
D One winning the Open Mare Trot with Dave Miller
