MacIntyre 'Welcome To Winter' Contest Winner

The results are in for the I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club’s Welcome To Winter Online Handicapping Contest!

Bob MacIntyre of Hamilton, Ont., has been declared the contest winner after finishing with a bankroll of $117.50 from his mythical $2 win and $2 place wagers for races 6 and 7 at Red Shores Racetrack at Charlottetown Driving Park, Fraser Downs at Elements Casino, Flamboro Downs and Woodbine Racetrack this past Saturday, November 11.

Bob selected five winners from the eight races. His victory was secured with longshot Liplock, winning Race 7 at Flamboro for trainer-driver Nick Boyd.

MacIntyre has been involved with racing since the 1960’s, first working as a groom at Greenwood Raceway. After getting married he stepped away from the racing game, but continues to keep his days filled by watching and betting online.

Congratulations to Bob who has won a Welcome To Winter Fan Club prize package and a $50 gift certificate to the harness racetrack of his choice, Flamboro Downs.

Schneider Voted 2017 Zoom Champion

The votes are in and the overall winner of this year’s Zoom Contest which featured five monthly themes and winners has been determined!

Congratulations to Cassidy Schneider of Arthur, Ont., who has been voted the 2017 Zoom Champion! Cassidy’s winning shot was a selfie with her eight-year-old gelding Reb The Raider. Schneider won the September Zoom challenge with her selfie shot which landed her the spot in the finals.

The photo was taken September 9 at her family farm as they were loading up to race at Hanover Raceway where Reb won his race!

Whenever Cassidy gets a chance, she is always helping out around the farm and at the racetrack. “I do everything from cleaning to jogging to warming up the horses at the track and paddocking.”

Cassidy attends Wellington District High School and when she’s not working with the horses she enjoys playing hockey, lacrosse and soccer. Schneider has won $50 gift card to The Raceway at The Western Fair District and a framed enlargement of her winning photo!

The I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club would like to thank everyone who submitted photos to all of this year’s Zoom Challenges.

Meet Our November Calendar Photographer: Evelyn Sabraw

Evelyn Sabraw of Acme, Alta., is the Heart of Harness Racing’s November photographer. Sabraw captured this image of Mannart Talia at Whispering Willow Acres.

Sabraw works full-time at Greatwest Kenworth as a warranty analyst. She has eight horses and two minis as a 'hobby', and also dabbles in photography.

In 2007, she was introduced to Standardbreds when she purchased “Truce” as a trail horse. This past season, she assisted Connie Kolthammer at Century Downs in Balzac, and was also one of Standardbred Canada’s photographers for the first leg of the World Driving Championship.

Sabraw isn’t new to SC’s photography challenges; she is a regular contributor to the Fan Club’s annual Heart of Harness Racing Calendar and also enters the monthly Zoom contests. This year another one of her great images was chosen as the Heart of Harness Racing’s February image, and she was the winner of the May Zoom contest featuring Mares & Foals with a shot of her foal, Rip It Up.

As for her formal photography training, Sabraw took some workshops in 2016. “I still wish I had more time to practice but luckily I have my own horses and there's always an opportunity to snap some photos!”

Evelyn and her husband Marc have owned retired Standardbreds for many years but when they were offered the opportunity to acquire a broodmare in January of last year, they didn't hesitate.

“We had our first (hopefully) race horse born in April. Rip It Up is no stranger to Standardbred Canada: he won the Foal zoom contest! In the meantime we have added a weanling filly to our herd as well as two more broodmares.” explained Sabraw.

”I’m crazy hooked on the breed and hopefully we’ll see one of ours at the track in the future!”
