Muscle Hill Is Canada's Horse Of The Year

Saturday, January 30, 2010  By: Harness Edge


Muscle Hill's undefeated three-year-old season was enough to get him not only the O'Brien Award in his division, but also the Horse of the Year crown on Saturday night.


Muscle Hill, who finished the season 12-for-12, made three starts in Canada, winning his elimination and the final of the Canadian Trotting Classic and then the Breeders Crown at Woodbine. Trained by Greg Peck, the son of Muscles Yankee also counted the Hambletonian, World Trotting Derby, and Kentucky Futurity among his wins in the United States.
