Wendy MacRae warms up Sports Royalty at Charlottetown

Wendy MacRae, at 53 years of age, can look back at a country life with horses, and forward to the excitement of faster class city racing. Growing up on a tobacco farm in Roseberry, PEI allowed her to get a pony at age 5, and a bigger saddle horse at eleven. She greatly enjoyed helping neighbor Laurie Morrison race his mare Roseberry Girl at the Pinette Raceway while a young teen. 

As she progressed to participating in equestrian events around the province, horse transportation became an issue. Wendy Larsen’s father did not have a trailer, but one of his part time workers did. Enter Roger MacRae, whose father Sandy MacRae was a dedicated standardbred horseman. It would be Sandy's trailer, which had transported old Buddy Kalmuck and Whisper Eureka among others, that was instrumental in cementing the partnership of Wendy and Roger.
