Here is a helmet cam video from August 10, 2016 of my three year old trotter racing at the Boone county fair. No criticisms please on the talent of the driver, I am happy that I have another line of work that feeds me – if I had to rely on my own driving skills I would not eat much.
If you are unfamiliar with harness racing this, and the next video I post give you a pretty good idea of the speeds and effort the horses put in. All that’s missing is the dirt, hair and sweat in your face and the feel of the bikes tires sliding out through the turns.
Stormy and I held on for third even off a few breaks, I am pretty sure I choked him down the backside causing the break. I should have moved him to the outside.
