2001 Little Brown Jug winner and 2007 Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee Bettor’s Delight was bred by Winbak Farm of Chesapeake City, Maryland and foaled on May 4, 1998. At the time of his retirement, pacer Bettor’s Delight was the ninth-leading single-season money winning Standardbred of all time, and he continues to rank in the top Fifty of that category. He owns a lifetime record of 26-15-6-1 for career earnings of $2,581,461.

Bettor’s Delight was purchased for just $65,000 at the 1999 Harrisburg yearling sale by John B. Grant of Milton, Ontario. He was trained by Scott McEneny and most often driven by Hall of Famer Michel Lachance.

Bettor’s Delight‘s major victories as a two-year-old in 2000 included the Nassagaweya Stake, Breeders Crown (setting a Mohawk track record 1:51.3 in the elimination) and Governors Cup. He finished his rookie season with a four-win streak, a record of 10-6-1-1 and $804,661 in earnings, garnering both the Dan Patch (U.S.) Two-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year and O’Brien (Canada) Two-Year-Old Colt Pacer of the Year awards.

As a three-year-old in 2001, Bettor’s Delight finished on the podium  14 of 16 starts, with nine victories and total earnings of $1,776,800. His impressive campaign included victories in the New Jersey Pacing Classic (matching the stakes record) and North America Cup (with the event’s largest margin of victory at the time). A serious foot injury in August threatened to end the racing career of Bettor’s Delight. However, after a three-week layoff he returned to win the Simcoe Stakes, Little Brown Jug and Tattersalls Pace. Bettor’s Delight captured two O’Brien Awards for Three-Year-Old Colt Pacer of the Year and Horse of the Year, along with the Dan Patch Award for Three-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year.
