Trainers and drivers recall some of the many champions associated with soon-to-be Canadian Hall of Famer Charles Armstrong in this week's Standardbred Canada video feature.

Charles “Charlie” Armstrong has been a true Icon in the Ontario and North American Horse Industry for over 60 years. Throughout this time, he has represented and participated in multiple disciplines and has been integral in the shaping of Ontario’s horse racing industry and horse industry. Armstrong Bros. Farm, the family-owned operation, was founded in the 1940s by Charlie’s father Elgin and uncle Ted, who were construction magnates. After Elgin’s death, Charlie, along with his wife Lenore, kept the Armstrong horse business strong.

With Charles Armstrong going into the Hall of Fame this year, which horse first comes to mind when you think of Armbro Farms?
