Canada's Horse Racing Hall of Fame announced May 19 that the Gustav Schickedanz, one of North America's leading Thoroughbred breeders the past 10 years, Canadian Thoroughbred Triple Crown winner Peteski and three champion runners, fillies Alywow, La Voyageuse and Maryfield are among this year's inductees.
Former jockey David Penna, who won 1,772 races during a 19-year career that began in 1978, died on Tuesday in Victoria, British Columbia, at the age of 46.
Gus Schickedanz's brilliant three-year-old Wando will try to become only the seventh winner of the Canadian Triple Crown, when hevgoes postward in Saturday's $500,000 Breeders' Stakes at Woodbine.
Robby Albarado galloped Royal Spy through slow early fractions and saved enough in the tank to post a one-length win over Dynameaux in the $75,000 Col. E.R. Bradley Handicap on the turf.
Millionaire Peteski, who won Canada's Triple Crown in 1993, was euthanized April 3 at the New Bolton Center in Pennsylvania because of complications from colic.
