Hanover Raceway kicked off its Survivor contest Saturday night, and Brad Forward continued his dominance among his fellow drivers.
Forward won three of the ten races on the night, giving him 13 wins on the five week old season, seven more than his closest competitor Clarke Stacey.
The 45 year old Newfoundland native started off his hattrick in Race 3 with Docs Baby in 2:03.3.
The 3 year old filly trotter is owned by Dr. John Mckinley of Oldcastle Ontario.
Forward also won Race 7 with Buttercup Baby in 1:59.1 for owner ICR Racing of Pepperlaw, and completed the hattrick in Race 8 with Son of a Eagle in 1:59.1 for owner and trainer David Burgess of Cambridge.
106 people took part in leg 1 of the Survivor contest.
Fans had to pick a horse in 4 different races and if all 4 of their horses finished in the money, they received a ballot to compete in the Survivor finale on August 6th.
Bayshore Broadcasting's Country 93 and HDTV in Walkerton and Hanover are sponsoring the contest with the top prize being a 50 inch High Def TV.
40 of the 106 contestants were perfect on their selections, however, everyone including those who qualified can compete again next week in leg 2 for another ballot in the finale.
Next Saturday is also Ladies Night at the Races.
Hanover Raceway has partnered with The Flower Shoppe and Greenhouses, My Scissors and I and Molson to provide some great prizes for Ladies in attendance.
Post time Saturday July 9th is 7:15pm.
