Kitchener, ON — This Friday (May 29) marks the fourth and final edition of Barncat Trivia, and Anthony Haughan is hunting for a clean sweep of the tournament.
Since its launch on May 8, more than 500 players have competed against fellow harness racing enthusiasts in these live virtual contests where 60 all-original multiple-choice questions are presented over three games (rounds). The contest is free to play.
An online show corresponds with each trivia event featuring a game host and special guests.
Haughan joins this week’s half-time show after trivia game one (approximately 7:20 p.m. EDT).
The Cambridge, Ontario trainer/driver has won all three legs of Barncat Trivia and comes into the finale with 13,239 points. (Runners-up Justin Fisher and Nick Salvi have 12,275 points and 12,247 points, respectively).
Haughan and partner Meg Crone operate an 11-horse barn at Classy Lane Stables in Puslinch, Ontario. He joins the show after trivia game No. 1 to chat about his boundless appetite for racing and how Irish winters in the 1980s stocked his memory bank with harness racing history and factoids.
Friday’s game and live show begin at 7 p.m. (EDT) and can be accessed at www.barncattrivia.com. This week’s trivia categories are: Epic Rivalries, Winning Colors, Breeders Crown, Big Time Owners, Yowzas Yearlings, and Odds & Ends.
Although the current tournament concludes on Friday, new players can still join this week’s game. This week’s top scorer wins $25.99 in game play for the mobile apps Catch Driver or Off And Pacing. The top overall scorer of the tournament wins a $100 gift card for the vendor of their choice.
