SATURDAY August 5th, 2017. Doors 5:00pm POST TIME 6:15pm
Hanover Raceway’s biggest event of the season is Dream of Glory day. Named after the late Hall of Fame stallion, Dream of Glory was also an excellent race horse being named the USTA champion at ages 3, 4 and 5, but his owner failed to enter him into the biggest stakes including the Hambletonian and the Kentucky Futurity saying he was more focussed on his Dairy business than his excellent Standardbred.
Regardless Dream of Glory went on to a prestigious Stud career with Armstrong Brothers of Ontario, and produced thousands of offspring that have earned over 48 million dollars in purse monies, including 144 winners of at least 100,000 dollars. Dream of Glory died in 1992 at the age of 21.
Hanover Raceway pays tribute to the late stallion with its 3 year old stake race which is held on the August Civic Holiday weekend.
