Former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion George Foreman won his first race as harness horse owner. Future Destiny, a highly promising but lightly raced 3-year-old pacer, romped to a 1:55.1 victory at Dover Downs on Thursday, March 30.

Foreman and Wayne Chrebet, former pass catching star of the New York Jets who owns other Standardbreds and races under the nom de course of Double Down stable, purchased an interest in the filly from Teague Inc. and K&R Racing, both of Houston, Del., a short time ago.

The 1:55.1 victory by Future Destiny was only her third lifetime start. After qualifying in 1:57.1 in early February at Dover Downs, trainer and co-owner George Teague entered the daughter of Artsplace in the Tender Loving Care series at the Meadowlands where dominated her opponents in a 1:53.4 win in her first career start and then came back in the $64,000 final to draw off for a 1:53.2 win.

Originally Teague had not planned to race Future Destiny in a non-stakes race, but due to not having a race before next week when she races at the Meadowlands in the Blossom Series, the filly was entered and now has sharpened up for her assignments.

Future Destiny is not the only horse owned by Foreman in the Teague Stable. Forman purchased five yearlings last Fall and early this year turned them, now age two, over to Teague to train. Teague says they are all training well and on schedule.
