The popular TROT Fantasy Stable contest, which attracted more than 1,100 contestants in 2018, already had a tie-in to the Breeders Crown with all 12 Crown winners gaining a bonus $200,000 toward their fantasy stable bankroll.
Dennis Rock of London, Ontario captured the 2018 TROT Magazine Fantasy Stable contest as his Two Rocks Stable boasted a $7,284,598 bankroll. Also breaking the $7 million plateau were runner-up Tom Baryluk of Sydney, N.S. and his Bristol Aces Stable ($7,061,495), and Franklin, Tenn.'s Ron Salcedo with his Angry Bald Man Stable ($7,032,185).
With both Rock and Baryluk unable to attend the 2019 World Harness Handicapping Championship this weekend at The Meadowlands, Salcedo will be one of the competitors vying for the $40,000 grand prize.
Stay tuned to the Standardbred Canada website later this week for the launch of the 2019 contest.
