Across the continent

Somebeachsomewhere again added his name to the record books Saturday night at Woodbine Raceway with the Breeder’s Crown finals featured.

With Somewhereovrarainbow winning the $600,000 two-year-old filly final, Somebeachsomewhere set a new all-time season’s record for most money earned by a crop of two-year-olds. Somebeachsomewhere’s first crop has hit the track in 2012, with his two-year-olds lighting up tote boards across North America, while earning $4.54 million to date, more than No Nukes’ $4.16 million set in 1990. Somebeachsomewhere was the talk of harness racing as he won all but one of his lifetime races in 2007-2008 for Nova Scotia trainer Brent MacGrath and his group of Maritime owners.
