Default A Great One Died Today


Cam Fella, one of the Greatest Harness Horses of all time, and the Greatest Sire of All Time passed on. He was my favorite Horse of them all. I've never seen a Guttier Animal. I saw him passed in the stretch several times, and came back to win. Helped establish The Meadowlands as The Worlds Capital of Harness Racing. Ended his career with a 28 Race Winning Streak. Maybe, along with On The Road Again, the last of the Great Horses that had an real US and Canadian following, as they went from Track to Track all over the US and Canada, at a Time when Harness Racing was still pretty Huge, and there were Many Harness Tracks. He was a Ridgeling (one Ball), and there were doubts he'd be an effective sire, but he became the greatest sire of them all.

I owned a pacer named "Handsome Fella" that was sired by Cam Fella. I claimed the horse for $5,000.00. He was bought oringinally for $40,000.00 but never amounted to anything.

Boy can I tell you some Cam Fella stories.
Alot of times when Pat would come down to race in Chicago, we would spend hours talking horses. And then finally he got his
"dream horse" with Cam, and greatfully his life changed for the better. They were the inseperable pair. I'm sure that he took Cam's demise hard, as did alot of us who were somehow connected to the "PACING MACHINE" His legacy though will live on, and thememories are still fresh in my mind, like they just happened yesterday. Without a doubt, a TRUE CHAMPION in every sense of the word
