The first time owning a racehorse was certainly not the last for these horsemen and women, who got hooked on their experiences with the thrill of victory, time spent with friends and family, and the search for the next great champion.

Some of harness racing's top trainers and drivers recall their first experiences owning a racehorse in this look back at a past SC video feature.

These horsemen and many others will most surely be checking out the roster of the the 2017 London Selected Yearling Sale.
