RUS Sunday July 13

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Five RUS ladies and their trotters descended on the Huron County oval Sunday afternoon to partake in the very first Racing Under Saddle Wagering Event in RUS history.  It was a gate to wire victory for rider Sarah E Town and five year old mare Radical Dreamer, clocking a time of 2:04.4 but only after a photo to determine the winner. Dayplanner, trained by Julie Walker, and ridden by Marit Valstad was a close second, with Twin B Excalibur and rider Evelyn Harms rounding out the triactor.

“What a huge privilege it was to win this race” states Town, “I want to make a mention that second place finisher Marit Valstad won with this horse last week at Mohawk and had another great race this week”. Town is looking forward to the rest of the season riding with RUS.  The next scheduled Racing Under Saddle event is set for Georgian Downs on

Ex Blue Jay Kelly Gruber was also on hand to greet racing and baseball fans of all ages as part of a fundraiser for the Clinton Minor Baseball Association. Two tickets were auctioned off to the highest bidder (Shannon Henry) to any destination that Air Canada flies.

LH Hollys Cam in the fifth took home the lions share of the purse for owner Lois Anderson of Clinton, trainer Robert Anderson and driven to the wire by Ryan Holliday.
