Travis Henry Notches 2,000th Driving Win
October 26, 2022 - Driver Travis Henry celebrated a career milestone on
the Wednesday evening (Oct. 26) card at Flamboro Downs.
Henry earned his 2,000th career victory with Blake MacIntosh trainee Sports Fan in the eighth race on the Flamboro card. The pair got away fifth off the car and after a :28 first quarter, followed cover on the outside behind Ifudontchewbigred (Travis Cullen). Unchanged, they continued in the outer flow through the :58.2 half. At the 1:27.3 third quarter, Henry pulled Sports Fan three-wide, meeting the leading Premier Nacho (Jason Ryan) eye-to-eye in the turn for home. Henry and Sports Fan continued surging forward on to a 2-1/4-length victory in 1:57.4. Premier Nacho finished second and Counter Offer (Michael Whelan) finished third.
After his win with the three-year-old colt by Sportswriter out of the Western Ideal mare My Ideal, Henry upgraded his season win total to 265, ranking him in the top five drivers in Canada by wins.

He also solidified his spot in the $225,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Super Final on Oct. 15 at Woodbine Mohawk Park, where he will go up against freshman pacing star Stockade Seelster, and the rest of Ontario’s top two-year-old male pacers.

DWs Point Man Breaks Track Record
September 4, 2022 - DWs Point Man stole the show as the province's top
trotting freshmen clashed in four $100,000-plus Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS)
Gold divisions on what became opening night at Flamboro Downs on Sunday
The nine-race card featured two OSS divisions for colts and geldings and two divisions for fillies. Driver Louis-Philippe Roy swept the male half of the OSS quartet.
Race 5 opened the OSS action and DWs Point Man established a lifetime mark and a track, OSS and Canadian record of 1:57 to extend his winning streak to four races. The time beats the previous record for two-year-old trotting geldings of 1:57.1 set by Twin B Archie last year.
Under Roy’s handling, DWs Point Man took advantage of inside position by going to the front from post 2, cutting the first quarter in :28.3 and establishing a lead he wouldn’t relinquish.
Linedrive Hanover Wins Juravinski Cup
May 22, 2022: 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.
