Still in college, US Virgin Island native stud Taylor Canfield and his crew of Matt Clark, Alden Reid, Tod Reynolds and Dave Shriner spent his summer kicking ass in the US match racing circuit’s "Trifecta" of Grade 2 events; the Chicago Match Cup, Detroit Cup, and last weekend’s Knickerbocker Cup. Canfield grabbed a 4th, 3rd, and 6th at the three events, giving him and his team an automatic berth at the Congressional Cup in Long Beach next year. Kudos to a cool kid with a bright future, and kudos to the organizers of the three events, each of which had some kind of live streaming video of their racing. We hope to be part of it again next year as the US match racing scene continues to get fired up. Full news is here, and the photo is from Meredith Block at the D-Cup.
