Charles Juravinski Memorial Cup
The inaugural edition of the $273,500 Charles Juravinski Memorial Cup was a race for the history books as Linedrive Hanover blazed around Flamboro Downs' half-mile oval to set a new all-age track and Canadian record on May 22, 2022.
Formerly known as the confederation cup, Flamboro
Downs' signature race for four-year-old pacers was renamed in 2022 in
honour of Charles Juravinski, the track's co-founder and Canadian Horse
Racing Hall of Famer who passed away in February 2022.
Linedrive Hanover blazed home a winner in a career-best clocking of 1:49 flat to become Canada's fastest pacer on a half-mile track. The time of the mile knocked one-fifth of a second off the Canadian record on a half-mile track set by This Is This Plan at Hippodrome 3R in 2019. It also bested Somebeachsomewhere's 1:49.2 all-age track record that the Hall of Famer set as a three-year-old in 2008.
