Hanover Raceway will honour an Arthur driver and horse that recently won the North America Cup.

Arthur driver Trevor Henry and horse Desperate Man will be honoured July 23rd for their North America Cup and OSS Super-final Champion wins last season.

Henry is a 10-time Hanover Raceway Driving Champion.

Desperate Man will also lead the post parade for Hanover’s Dream of Glory Eliminations, which will be part of their July 23rd race card.

Henry will meet fans, take pictures and sign autographs. Desperate Man will also be available for pictures.

Owners John and Kathy Cecchin, and Paul and Nikki Davies, are also allowing Hanover Raceway to display the 2021 North America Cup Trophy and the OSS Super Final Trophy.

A fundraiser in support of Canadian Tire Jump Start will take place during the event with proceeds from the sale on Trevor Henry t-shirts will go towards the youth sports initiative. There will also be a silent auction.

Henry has 7,244 career wins and has driven the winners of $71,442,180 in purse earnings in his career.

“We’re delighted to have this day in honour of what Trevor Henry has meant to Hanover Raceway and its fans over the years. He has the most driving wins and driving titles at our race track in our history and I know our fans will be thrilled to be part of this day to honour him. A huge thank you to Trevor and Shannon Henry for being very willing to be part of our vision for having this event,” said Hanover Raceway General Manager Steve Fitzsimmons.

“This event has been in the planning stage for almost two years, but we wanted to wait until we could return to regular attendance levels and enjoy the social interaction with fans to make this event special.”
