The Story of Somebeachsomewhere

- Harness Racing Champion -

On May 25, 2005, a harness racing icon was born.

Somebeachsomewhere is a standardbred horse that was sired by Mach Three, out of Wheres The Beach, a Beach Towel mare. Brent MacGrath bought the colt as a yearling for Schooner Stables of Truro, Nova Scotia.

Somebeachsomewhere began his harness racing career as a 2 year old in the Battle of Waterloo at Grand River Raceway. After an impressive debut he moved onto the Metro Pace Eliminations at Mohawk Racetrack. There he faced Dali, the fastest two-year-old colt of the year and won the race by 3 1/2 lengths in 1:52.1. The next week was the $1 million final of the event, which he won, in a world record 1:49.3.

Somebeachsomewhere finished off his two-year-old campaign with wins in a pair of stakes races at Mohawk, the Champlain Stakes, and the Nasagaweya Stakes. He was a perfect 6-6, earned $812,592 and shared the title of Canada Horse of the Year with Tell All.

As a three year old, Somebeachsomewhere made his 2008 debut by winning his division of the Burlington Stakes over Santanna Blue Chip. Following the Burlington, Somebeachsomewhere began preparing for the $1.5 million North America Cup, Canada's richest harness race, which he won handily in 1:49.0.

Up next for the star of the sport was the $1 million Meadowlands Pace and won the elimination by 4 1/2 lengths in a career best 1:48.3. Beach had his first taste of defeat the following week when Art Official caught him in the stretch, and beat him by a head, in a world record time of 1:47.0.

On 27 September 2008, Beach tied the all age world record of 1:46.4 at The Red Mile in the Bluegrass. The colt's final race, which was another win, came in the 2008 Breeder's Crown at Meadowlands. Somebeachsomewhere ended his racing career with a record of 20-1 in 21 career starts, career earnings of $3,328,755, and a mark of 1:46.4.

On 31 January 2009, Somebeachsomewhere was the unanimous winner of the O'Brien Award for top three-year-old pacing colt. He was also named recipient of the prestigious Cam Fella Award as well as named Canadian Horse of the Year. On 4 February 2009, he was the recipient of the Dan Patch Award for U.S. Pacer of the Year and named the first ever Canadian-sired U.S. Horse of the Year. He is also among the 2009 Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductees.

Somebeachsomewhere was named News Maker of the Year in 2008. Here is an interview with Newsworlds Jim Nunn and Trainer/Owner Brent MacGrath.

The original picture used for this drawing was taken by Dave Landry during this race at the Red Mile in Lexington, Kentucky. Somebeachsomewhere tied a world record of 146.4.
