This weekend, a live horse racing event was held in Ontario at Woodbine. The fans had a chance to watch the 38th edition of the Pepsi North America Cup on September 11, at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
There were many worthy contenders present, and to the big surprise, it was not the crowd’s favorite who won the annual CA$1 million event. Although it enjoyed a great start, Bulldog Hanover, the crowd’s favorite didn’t manage to win the race. Instead, it was Desperate Man who scored the win.
Desperate Man is a horse who has win two out of nine starts this season. So far, the horse has won five times from fifteen starts and now has managed to win CA$853,014 for owners Kathy & John Cecchin.
During the later stage of the race, Bulldog Hanover started to drift off the cones. Desperate Man’s driver, Trevor Henry, used that to his advantage and managed to end up winning the race. He was not the only one to use Bulldog Hanover’s failing to keep up the pace though.
Perfect Sting managed to get second place, as Whichwaytothebeach ended up third, and Bulldog Hanover slipping to fourth place.
Before the start of the race, Bulldog Hannover and Perfect Sting were allowed to pick their starting post position. They choose posts 3 and 4.
This is Trevor Henry’s fourth appearance at the North America Cup while Desperate Man’s trainer Kathy Cecchin participated for the first time in this particular event.
