Following closely after his milestone 8000th winning drive and his February private purchase of pacer Waterside Champ bringing him a pair of wins in his first three starts, Hall Of Fame driver Wally Hennessey has done it again with a private acquisition of pacing mare Eyewitness Account at The Isle Casino Racing Pompano Parkv.
In the first start in the care of trainer Dan Hennessey, the 5 year old
Camluck-Unchained Speed mare was sent straight to the front in a $4,000 purse
conditioned test by her new owner and driver through fractions of 27, 55.3, and
1:24.4. Wally Hennessey had his new charge, previously owned by Shelley Henry
of Arthur, ON through her February 13 start, unurged through the
stretch to stop the clock in 1:54.2. Eyewitness Account, now a career winner of
$51,402, was bred by Millar Farms of Newmarket, ON and her earlier
trainers were Michel Ouellet and Eric Adams before racing in recent years at
Pompano and in Ontario from the care of Wayne Henry. Eyewitness Account also
had a 2011 stint at Batavia Downs from the barn of David McNeight III.
