Hanover Raceway Hosting Trevor Henry Day July 23

Hanover, ON - May 9, 2022 - Hanover Raceway is pleased to announce that they will recognize 10 time Hanover Raceway Driving Champion Trevor Henry, with a special day in his honour on Saturday, July 23rd, with many festivities taking place as part of the celebration.

The day will also be a fundraiser in support of Canadian Tire Jump Start, a program that provides kids in need the opportunity to participate in sports.

Trevor will be on hand to have a meet and greet with his fans and sign autographs and take photos with them.

2021 North America Cup Champion and OSS Super-final Champion Desperate Man, a horse that Trevor drove to victory last season in both of those prestigious races, will also be at the Raceway for fans to get photos with and meet.

"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.  In the meantime, Trevor and Desperate Man won the North America Cup and the OSS Super Final last fall, so we reached out to the Cecchins and Davieses to see if Desperate Man could be part of this day," said Hanover Raceway General Manager Steve Fitzsimmons. We're incredibly grateful that they were excited to have him be included in the day, and I know our fans will be happy to meet and pet him and watch him lead the post parade for our Dream of Glory eliminations." commented Fitzsimmons.

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.  His owners John and Kathy Cecchin and, Paul and Nikki Davies have also graciously allowed the race track to display their 2021 North America Cup Trophy and OSS Super Final Trophy and other memorabilia of his career to date.

There will also be a Trevor Henry custom-made Commemorative T-Shirt created that fans can purchase at the event, with all proceeds going to Jump Start, as well as a silent auction that will include a signed set of Trevor's Race Colours.
"We're delighted to have this day in honour of what Trevor Henry has meant to Hanover Raceway and it's fans over the years. He has the most driving wins and driving titles at our race track in our history," said Fitzsimmons. "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."
