All-Stars Racing would have taken home the gold medal if Breeders’ Bowl 2017 was Equinics.
In an unofficial medal count, awarding five points for winning a race, three points for running second, and one point for third, All-Stars Racing did best as a team in this year’s Breeders’ Bowl. ASR members brought home four gold medals, along with two silver and two bronze for a winning total of 26 points.
Given did his best to lead the GR Simsters to a gold medal, winning three of four BB races he entered. However, even with Lenny chipping in with two silver medals, the GR Simsters as a team only ended up with a silver medal with an unofficial total of 23 points.
The bronze medal went to Empire State Racing, with 18 total points.
The unofficial totals were as follows:
1. All-Stars Racing, 28
2. GR Simsters, 23
3. Empire State Racing, 18
4. Minnesota Testbarn Residency, 13
5. Blazing Saddles, 9
6. Racing HQ, 8
7. Pastures of Green, 7
8. Universal Racing Club, 5
9(tie). Northwest Racing Circuit, 3
Hispano Parlante, 3
11(tie). MIDAS, EAAA Racing, European Union Racing Organization, East-West Connection and Bargain Bred Racing Series, all with 1 point.
Two prominent residencies, Queensland Racecourse and DelPenn National, were shut out. This only proves how difficult it is to hit the board in a Breeders’ Bowl race.
These totals were compiled with an eye toward the next running of the Equinics, expected to take place in February 2018.
