IT WAS ANOTHER GOOD YEAR FOR PARK RACING CLUB
Seventeen times Evergreen Park Racing Club 2018 horses left the starting gate in 2018 and 11 times the Club steeds finished in a win, place or show position.
The Club had four horses running in races at Rocky Mountain Turf Club in Lethbridge and in Grande Prairie at The Horses At Evergreen Park – Swiss Skimmer, Brave Julian, Supah Spirit and Diamond Cut.
Swiss Skimmer, born in California in 2012, put the most money in the Club coffers.
She netted $7,867 for the Club including $3,975 for winning a 6 ½ furlong race at Evergreen Park on August 19. Over the spring-summer racing season Swiss Skimmer also had a second, third, fourth and sixth.
The second, on June 30 in Lethbridge, came in a seven furlongs race and earned the Club $2,912.
Brave Julian, born in 2008 in California, crossed the finish line first in that race at Rocky Mountain Turf Club.
He also had a second, fourth and two fifths.
Both Diamond Cut and Supah Spirit raced in Lethbridge and Grande Prairie, but their appearances were limited because of injuries.
Supah Spirit, born in Arizona in 2013, had two seconds, a third and a fourth for the Club winning $2,722 in total racing twice in Lethbridge and twice in Grande Prairie.
Diamond Cut left the starting gate three times as a Club horse with two of those at The Horses At Evergreen Park.
She was born in California in 2012 and managed a second and two thirds racing as a Club horse while helping put $2,110 into the Club bank account.
Club membership was down about 25 over 2017, but it still turned out to be a break-even season with no red figures.
In 2017, the first year of the Club, the four Club horses – Extreme Spell, Red ‘N Black Attack, Dman Doughty and Command The Land - ran 13 times with four wins, two seconds and two thirds.
The Evergreen Park Racing Club 2019 will kick off in the spring with a social at Evergreen Park.
