Forest City draw complete

City draw complete

London, ON --- Several of this year’s star performers, on the track and in the bike, will be at The Raceway at Western Fair District this Saturday night (Nov. 26) for the C$195,000 Forest City Pace, the feature event of the Fall Meet at the London, Ontario racetrack.

The draw was completed this morning among the nine pacing mares that will compete for the title. Between them they have amassed C$10.5 million in purses.

“This is certainly the toughest field we’ve ever assembled for this event, it should be a great race,” noted Ian Fleming, the track’s Racing and Gaming Manager.

Recent Breeders Crown winner Anndrovette, a winner of 11 of 19 this season for $747,112 in earnings, will not have the best post possible in the field, but she’ll have the advantage of North America’s top driver in the sulky as Tim Tetrick will make his first ever appearance at The Raceway to guide the 4-year-old Riverboat King daughter.

Tetrick will be available for an autograph session, along with local favorites and top drivers Jody Jamieson and Trevor Henry, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at The Raceway’s front entrance.

This is the third annual Forest City Pace. The inaugural was captured by Southwind Madonna in 2009 and last year’s edition saw Dreamfair Eternal establish a stakes record of 1:54.3. Dreamfair Eternal will be back to defend her title and has drawn post six with Chris Christoforou in the bike. He guided her to last year’s victory as well.

The Raceway will be simulcast into California for the first time. They will be showing the Forest City final and another race on the program as well.

The field will line up as follows: 1. Warrawee Koine–Trevor Henry; 2. Voelz Hanover–Mario Baillargeon; 3. Seriously–Jody Jamieson; 4. Ginger And Fred–Trevor Henry; 5. Blissful Smile–Scott Zeron; 6. Dreamfair Eternal–Chris Christoforou; 7. Anndrovette–Tim Tetrick; 8. Chancey Lady–Luc Ouellette; and 9. Ticket To Rock–Jody Jamieson.

Post time is 7:05 p.m. and as always program pages and live video are available through this link.
