Dream of Glory

SATURDAY August 1st, 2020.  Doors 5:00pm  POST TIME  6:15pm



The Dream of Glory Final is Hanover Raceway’s Crown Jewel event.  Named in honour of the late great Hall of Fame stallion of the same name, who as a sire was a elite producer of successful race horses.

Dream of Glory was also an excellent race horse in his era, being named the USTA champion at ages 3, 4 and 5.  His owner however failed to enter him into some of the sport's biggest stakes that could have proven his elite ability on the track, including the Hambletonian and the Kentucky Futurity, with his owner 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 off-spring that earned over 48 million dollars in purse money and at last count included 144 winners of at least one hundred thousand 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 annually on the August Civic Holiday weekend.

We've had anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 fans attend this annual race, which always has a lot of special activities in attendance and culminates with a free fireworks display after the conclusion of the race card, which is always a crowd pleaser!

Doors open at 5:00pm

Details will be update on this page, as things are added to this event.  Stay tuned and plan to attend one of Ontario Harness Racing's iconic race nights!
