We thought it might be fun to take a look at all the connections to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame to this year’s Pepsi North American Cup horses, and what we found is that 9 horses in the 10 horse field as well as the Also Eligible horse have connections to Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductees.
Here is a horse by horse breakdown of the 2013 Pepsi North American Cup field’s Hall of Fame ties.
Fool Me Once – Can be traced back to Cam Fella through his mother Fool That I Am who is a great granddaughter of Cam Fella (1986)
Captaintreacherous – sired by Somebeachsomewhere as well as having a Hall connection on his mother’s side. Worldly Treasure is a great granddaughter of 2013 Hall of Fame Inductee Niatross
Twilight Bonfire – goes back to Cam Fella through the mare Firelight Dancer who is a Cam Fella (1986) daughter
Wake Up Peter – Niatross shows up in this horse’s pedigree through his mother Lovely Lady who is a great granddaughter of the 2013 inductee
Sunshine Beach – Sired by Somebeachsomewhere (2009) who in turn traces back to Cam Fella and Matts Scooter as previously mentioned
Odds on Equuleus – Driven by Hall of Fame Driver John Campbell (1987), Odds on Equuleus has Hall of Fame bloodlines on both sides of his pedigree. His dam, Latte Lady is a great granddaughter of Cam Fella. His sire, Art Major, is a great grandson of Niatross
Captive Audience – Shares the same sire line as Odds on Equuleus as a son of Art Major – a great grandson of Niatross
