Hanover Raceway will play host to the Walker Invitational Trot this Saturday night.
The annual race pays tribute to Alan and Viola Walker of Owen Sound, Ont. The late Alan Walker was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 1996 and was one of the country’s top drivers. Walker not only won several driving titles, but was also an excellent trainer, especially with trotters. Some of his stock included McDuffs Lassie, Cadenza and Clement Hanover.
Also at Hanover this Saturday will be the staff from 92.3 The Dock Radio in Owen Sound. The Dock staff will be awarding one lucky fan with a brand new high definition TV package courtesy of HDTV in Walkerton and Hanover.
Saturday is also Week 3 of the Survivor Handicapping contest. Fans are asked to pick a horse in Races 5 through 8 that they think will finish in the money. If they are right, they’ll return on August 9 to compete for another high definition TV package courtesy of Country 93 Radio.
First-race post time Saturday night is 7:15 p.m. The Walker Memorial has been carded as the final dash on the 10-race card.
