Canterbury Park track report


With five victories from his first 22 starts at this meeting, Trainer Justin Evans has made a quick impression on racing fans at Canterbury Park. Evans, 25, is a third generation horseman who began working on the Prescott Downs backstretch at the age of 14. Following stints working in the barns of Owen McDaniel and Darryl Alvey, Evans became a regular on the Turf Paradise-Yavapai circuit. He has sent out 336 winners since sending out his first starter in 1999.

Evans, whose stable is primarily focused on claiming stock, is in his first season Canterbury. Several runners in his stable are nominated to the Claiming Crown, including the improving Threat From Above, who recently captured an allowance event in his second start of the meet.

Evans is quick to credit his fianc?e, Tammy Domenofsky, for the barn's success. Domenofsky gallops the barn's horses in addition to organizing the daily work schedule.
