2022 Live Racing Season Concludes
August 30, 2022 - The 2022 live racing season came to an end at
Georgian Downs on Tuesday evening, but there was no suspense when it came
to deciding who would take home the driving and training titles – this
year’s winners were ‘home and cooled’ going into the closing card.
Brett MacDonald won the dash title by virtue of his 45 trips to victory lane over the course of the season. Travis Cullen and Tyler Borth were next in line with 34 wins apiece.
Richard Moreau staked claim to another training title thanks to a 38-win campaign at the Innisfil, ON oval. Jodie Cullen (20 wins) was the runner-up in the standings, while Murray Brethour (14 wins) wound up third.
Fashion Frenzie Wins Earl Rowe Trot
August 28, 2022 - Richard Moreau trainee Fashion
Frenzie tucked a worthwhile tightener in his holster heading to the Maple
Leaf Trot next week as he lowered the track record at Georgian Downs for
aged trotting geldings in taking the racetrack's signature event, the
$100,000 Honourable Earl Rowe Memorial Invitational, on Sunday (Aug. 28).
Driver Louis-Philippe Roy wasted little time to place the 2-5 choice on top to a :27.4 first quarter with Truffles Too sitting the pocket. That pair stayed in line through a :56.4 half and through three-quarters in 1:24.2 while the outer tier struggled with Mycrownmykingdom spinning his wheels uncovered and four lengths from the lead.
Rounding the bottom corner, Roy kept Fashion Frenzie to task as Truffles Too took aim from the pocket, but only gave pursuit to settle for second by 1-1/4 lengths in a 1:52.3 mile. The time bests the previous record for an aged trotting gelding of 1:53.2 first established in 2004 by Abbey Road C and later matched in 2021 by Arrakis. Combs Hanover finished third and Gold Edition took fourth.
For Fashion Frenzie, the Rowe victory gave him five-straight wins from five tries in 2022 and added to his resume of now 16 victories in 24 attempts. The four-year-old Archangel gelding has accrued $847,685 in purses for owners Ecurie Francis Richard Inc., Mario Bourgea, Pierre Guillemette and Sylvain Richard. He paid $2.40 to win.

July 26, 2022 - A visit to Georgian Downs to watch live harness racing
was a wish come true for a special guest.
In a visit orchestrated by the Senior Wish Association, Georgian Downs hosted racing fan Ned Soulliere and his wife Linda for a special night at the track on Tuesday July 26. A dead-heat in the evening's first race dedicated to Soulliere added to the excitement of his visit as he joined the winner's circle celebrations, flanked by four-year-old pacing mares Better Kissthe Men and Wine And Cheese.
Georgian Downs, which has worked with the Senior Wish Association in the past, provided hats, betting vouchers, reserved lounge seating and facilitated a driver meet and greet and a paddock tour for the longtime racing fan.
