GLADA amateurs ready their trotters

by Patricia Miller, for the Great Lakes Amateur Drivers Association

Hazel Park, MI — A field of eight amateur regulars are fit and ready to compete on Monday (July 1) at Hazel Park in race one.

Summer excitement is building as points accumulate for the season championship and the opportunity to drive in the Fouts Memorial at Delaware.

Patricia Miller drew the lucky one hole this week and will drive her own Hay Look Outl. On out is the ever tough Miss Tiger Lily, trained by George Ursitti and in rein to Larry Steenbergen. Next out is speedster Count The Cost, a Dixie Buter trainee with Maurice Goldschmidt in the sulky. The Jeff Pickvet trainee Crown Glory will leave from the four hole with Kelly Walker at the lines. Another strong competitor, Smokin Steven, trained by John Bangert, will scoot out of the five hole with Mike Mitchell at the controls, and club president Steve Oldford will drive his own Garbarino from the six hole. A new entry, Beauty Chip, trained by Bob Rowland and driven by last year’s champion Richard Roach, will show off in the seven hole, and out in the cool Michigan air will be strong competitor Kara Buxton, driving the Al Tomlinson trained Cacao Rust.

With good racing luck, the field will go fast and furious around Hazel Park’s track, the skies will remain rainless for a big change, and yet another new winner will share a huge smile in the winner’s circle with friends and family.
