Congratulations go to owner and breeder Gustav Schickedanz of King township, who is carrying on his proud family tradition of breeding the best of horses, a tradition that goes back for many generations. Schickedanz said of his champion horse, "He runs a beautiful race. He just gallops for home." Patrick Husbands, the jockey who rode Wando to the Triple Crown, said, "He's a great champion." Congratulations also go to Patrick Husbands and to the talented trainer, Mike Keogh.
This has been a great year for Canadian thoroughbred racing. It's an industry that employs roughly 60,000 people in this province and generates some $1.6 billion into the economy. Congratulations to all of the men and women involved in this great industry.FOR JUNIORS
