NIATROSS — Super Pacing Horse
Perfection, you catch glimpses of it in sports — a golfer scoring a hole-in-one, a pitcher tossing a perfect game or a goalie shutting out the opposition in hockey.
Whether it is the competitiveness of a Michael Jordan, the focus of Tiger Woods or the creativity of a Wayne Gretzky — sport is drama and when players or competitors of this ilk are involved it is usually exciting and often breathtaking.
Niatross possessed the above-mentioned traits which complemented his charisma, grace and class — Niatross was perfection in a racehorse.
Niatross thrilled harness racing fans as he stormed across North America in 1979 and 1980 smashing World, Stakes and Track Records wherever he ventured and leaving a legacy in our sport which has not been approached since.
These pages are my tribute to that legacy.
