I am really looking forward to the 3rd race Friday afternoon ( 12:45, special holiday post time as a trotter (I Jasmin) is taking on the pacers.  Owner Ming Siu has elected to race this filly before sending her to Ontario to take on some of North America's best three year old fillies.

On behalf of the HRBC Board of Directors and staff I would like congratulate the Robert Murphy family on Bob being inducted into the CANDIAN HORSE RACING HALL OF FAME.  The induction ceremonies will take place in Ontario on August 6th. 

At the AGM of Harness Racing BC the final opening on the Board of Directors was filled by Kelly MacMillan as a Breeder Director.  Welcome Kelly!!!

John Chappell qualified for the Standardbred Canada Western Region Drivers Challenge to be held Saturday, April 26th (12:45 post time) at Fraser Downs.  It is hoped there will be 9 nine horse fields for the event, if that is the case then Scott Knight has also earned his way in.

Brandon Campbell, Travis Cullen and Gerry Hudon will represent Alberta, Richard Remillard (Father of former Fraser Downs Trainer/Driver Tyler) from Saskatchewan and Don Howlett from Manitoba will round out the field.

Standardbred Canada is advertising a Pick 8 Handicapping Challenge for all of the Drivers Challenges across the country, check it out...

The top two from the Fraser Downs competition will go the Nationals in PEI in August and the winner of that event will go to the Worlds in Australia in 2015.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Ed Lechner on April 27th from 12:00 - 4:00 at the farm, details can be found at the Race Office or HRBC office
