You know how I was telling you about visiting out East? Surprise! I have touched down in Nova Scotia and I can't wait to see all your smiling faces.
I decided I couldn't miss Atlantic Grand Circuit Week at Truro Raceway. In addition to all the fun stuff they have planned, they're going to be helping an organization called Maggie's Place. They help kids and their families that face difficulties in Cumberland and Colchester.
Kicking off on July 20th, the Grand Circuit runs until July 27. Each race card throughout the week will host two bouncy pony races. Encourage your parents to give it a try and cheer them on.
Speaking of cheering, Chester the Clown has challenged me to a race during Grand Circuit Week. I have been running every morning in preparation. Come out and cheer me on, maybe I'll set a new track record!
See you soon!

How is your summer going? School is wrapping up which means two whole months of fun!
I’ve been pretty busy looking at flights. I am going to be flying out to Nova Scotia soon to visit all of you out on the East Coast!
I’m a little skittish of flying, but Maven flew all the way out to Sweden to race in the Elitloppet. More than 50,000 people went to Solvalla in Stockholm to cheer her and all the other horses on! If she can fly all the way across the ocean, I think I can make it to Truro.
Here’s a picture of the trotting mare herself, settling in and showing off at Solvalla with Yannick Gingras.
Have you ever flown before? It’s not so scary, right? I can’t wait to see all your smiling faces!

Did you have fun at the Giddy Up & Gallop Fun Run on Sunday at Mohawk Racetrack? It was awesome to see all your smiling faces in person!
It was a pretty incredible day! Winning the Mascot Race was one of the many highlights in the day. I’m pretty excited about it though, my hooves just can’t stop dancing! Thanks for cheering me on, you guys are the best!
For those who couldn’t make it out to the track, you should check out all the awesome photos from the day. They’re all on the Standardbred CanadaFacebook page. Lots of smiling faces and hooves flying…I mean legs RUNNING! To be honest, that Mascot Race tired me out, I’m still recovering!
Yesterday’s race was in support of an organization called Friends of We Care. They send kids with physical challenges to summer camp. These kids get to experience new things and make some lifelong memories.
I was sure impressed by all the runners in the one lap kids race. Everyone was so speedy! Victor Montini hit the wire first in a time of 5:23; he won it in 2012 too. That’s what I call fast feet!
What cool summer plans do you all have? I’m counting down the days until the Pepsi North America Cup at Mohawk Racetrack, it’s going to be one of the best races this year I think. What do you think?
See you soon!

The year is winding down, school is almost over, and that means SUMMER! I’m super excited about all the cool stuff taking place in the next few months and I want to tell you all about it!
This Sunday, the Giddy Up and Gallop Fun Run will be taking place at Mohawk Racetrack, one of my favourites. There will be a Mascot Race (which I’ve been training for all winter), a Kids Fun Run and a 5km run. There will be horses, fun games and prizes! And even better, there is a BBQ after. Thank goodness too; just thinking about all that running is making me hungry!
Racing moves back to Mohawk this week, meaning there are lots of fun nights at the track and exciting races taking place soon. Mohawk will be racing 5 days a week with awesome promotions every night. Coming up on June 14th is the $1-million Pepsi North America Cup where all the best three-year-old pacers will be struttin’ their stuff. Tell Mom and Dad that the first race post time that night is 6:45pm so you won’t miss a minute of the action!
What are you most excited about? What cool things are you doing this summer? Tell me about it! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come out and cheer me on in the Mascot Race on Sunday!
I’ll see you in the winners circle,
