In an interesting quest (as mentioned below) Somebeachsomewhere is currently being promoted by racing to be "Male Athlete of the Year" in Canada, to follow Secretariat who earned the nod in 1973. This took a turn today as "The National", the nations nightly newscast is airing a piece on the horse, and on the quest this evening.
I am sure someone from Standardbred Canada will post the piece on youtube, so when it is up, we'll post it here.
To add your name to the petition, no matter where you are from, click the cute Panderosa colt to the right.
"Younger can't race against older alert!" as we spoke about below, Chancey Lady, a three year old filly, just beat older Open mares at Chester in a track record 150.3; at 4-5.

Carryovers Provide Big Reach and an Immediate Return

Chancey Lady was tremendous today. Nothing different than a Grade 1 winner facing open allowance company, IMO. 4-5 was a gift, even though I made her 9-5 in the ML. Hope to see her back next season.
