Xtreme Horsepower was a BLAST!!!!

Hi everyone!

Have I ever mentioned how much I absolutely love Xtreme Horsepower night at Georgian Downs? It is one of my favourite racing events! I mean, where else can you see harness racing sprints, miniature horse sulky races, 18 horse fields, and horseless sulky pulls? One of my favourite races is the Standardbred Undersaddle race where drivers and riders hop right on top of the horses! So entertaining!

There were bouncy castles, enormous slides, face painters, jugglers, mural colouring, mimes, clowns, stilt walkers, and even a fire eating man! I barely had time to fit everything in!

Last but not least, there was the Xtreme Mascot Race. It was the toughest race I’ve had yet! Unfortunately I tripped about half way through the course causing a bit of a road pile and came in last, but I was so pleased that Sulky Sam won the race on his home turf! The crowd was going wild!

It was just an amazing night for everyone!

Don’t forget to come and cheer me on this Saturday at Hiawatha Horse Park for the second to last Mascot Race of the season! I’m pumped and have been putting in long training hours since Saturday’s tumble! I’ve got to redeem myself and cap the season off with a win!

See you there everyone!
