Det bliver fantastisk spændende at få lejlighed til at møde Dr. Paul F. Spears fra Hanover Shoe Farms, USA's største og mest berømte stutteri med avlshingste som Andover Hall, Cantab Hall, SJ's Caviar, Donerail og Donato Hanover, årets Hambletonian-favorit.

At være forelæser sammen med Paul Spears i 4 dage forekommer både uvirkeligt og frygtindgydende, men det er en uovertruffen mulighed for at få kontakter til den absolutte top i amerikansk travavl. Jeg glæder mig helt vildt.

Kopi af omtalen i Harness Link:

The event, which is co-sponsored by the PEI Department of Agriculture and the PEI Colt Stakes, will take place at the Atlantic Technology Centre and is slated for the second weekend in June, beginning Friday June 8th with a welcoming luncheon. The agenda will include sessions on Pedigree Basics, Stallion and Broodmare selection, and Breeding statistics.

Already confirmed is Aage Hansen, noted author and pedigree researcher form Denmark.

There will also be time for play including a visit to the races at the Charlottetown Driving Park Entertainment Centre, a traditional Island Lobster dinner, optional visits to the Atlantic Vet College, Island breeding farms, and all the delights offered by the Garden Of The Gulf, Prince Edward Island.

Participation in this unique venture is limited to the first 40 registrants and registration must be completed by June 1st. Several of the attendees at last years inaugural Camp have already indicated they will be back for more.
