May 12 2015 - Camluck: One Of A Kind
"There isn’t a smarter horse than he is. He’s that smart. He puts that attitude into his foals. We notice it with his yearlings when we go to video them. They video terribly...They won’t be chased. They’re too smart to be chased. They’ll turn around and look at you and wonder, ‘What are you chasing me for?’ It is absolutely an intelligence that comes right from (Camluck)."..... read the complete story

Camluck First Horse Inducted To Wall of Fame
The Raceway at Western Fair District will have its 2015 Wall of Fame induction ceremony on Friday, May 15 and, for the first time, the prestigious honour will go to a horse rather than a human recipient.
The incomparable Camluck will be honoured during a ceremony that night in recognition of his remarkable contributions both on the racetrack and as a sire.
The son of legendary Cam Fella became one of the fastest horses of his generation by virtue of his 1:48.4 time trial effort in 1992 at Lexington’s Red Mile. Over the course of his brilliant racing career, he earned more than $1 million while facing one of the very best older pacing crops of all-time that included the likes of Artsplace, Staying Together (his stablemates from the Bob McIntosh stable), Cambest, Silver Almahurst and Odds Against, just to name a few.
However, it was in the breeding shed, where Camluck made his greatest impact and stamped himself as one of the greatest pacing stallions in harness racing history. From 2,332 foals, Camluck produced just shy of 1,600 race winners and he retired recently with overall offspring earnings of $218,771,118.
His average earnings per starter was $118,768 and he produced 28 starters who banked more than $1 million and 62 performers who took a record of 1:50 or better.
