Owner Berthiuame Has Veteran and Newcomer in Breeders Crown

By Perry Lefko for Breeders Crown

One is a nine-year-old war horse and the other is a two-year-old barely into his racing career, but collectively Voelz Hanover and Traceur Hanover give Quebec businessman Richard Berthiaume hopes of winning his first Breeders Crown race.

Berthiaume, who has been in the horse business for 40 years, has been close a few times, placing second with Voelz Hanover in the 2010 Open Mare Pace, and third in 2011 with Oh Sweet Baby in the Three-Year-old Filly Trot and third in 2012 with Murmur Hanover in the Two-Year-Old Colt Trot. 

This just might be his best chance to finally enter the winner’s circle. 

Voelz Hanover, the nine-year-old, and Traceur Hanover, the two-year-old, won races Saturday night at the Meadowlands in tune-ups for this week’s Breeders Crown finals. Voelz Hanover won a free-for-all for older pacing mares, beating a field that included two-time Breeders Crown winner Anndrovette.
