Beware of ‘Chucky’

Milton, ON — Hall of Famer Paul MacDonell laughs at the comparison, the one between the fictional serial killer doll first made famous in the 1988 horror flick ‘Child’s Play,’ and the sophomore pacer who shares the same first name as the movie’s nefarious main character. ​

​“He’s a pretty smart horse all around,” said MacDonell of rising sophomore star Chucky Hanover. “The only little caveat he does have is that when he’s in the paddock, he knows he’s racing, and he won’t sit still. I think he was named appropriately because he’s like the Chucky doll. He gets fired up when he’s knows it’s time to go. Other than that, he’s a perfect little horse around the barn. It’s really hard to put him down for any reason.”
