A Perfect End To The Breeders Crown’s 30th Birthday Bash!
That the highlight of the 2014 Breeders Crown at the Meadowlands Racetrack came at the end makes for perfect poetry for the championship series on its 30th birthday.
When the stunning 11-year-old European invader Commander Crowe finally vanquished the North American trotting hordes in the 12th and final Breeders Crown of the $5.4 million weekend, even Tom Charters became a fan boy.
“It moved me to go out to the farm the next morning and get my picture taken with the horse,” said the executive director of the Breeders Crown. “I’m not supposed to pick favourites, but I do take delight in that horse, for sure.”
