The thoroughbred retirement farm Old Friends announced that Channel Maker is part of the Class of 2024 of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. Game on Dude was not inducted into the Thoroughbred Racing Museum and Hall of Fame after being nominated for the third time. Thus, it led to the farm’s disappointment.

In addition, Channel Maker’s pedigree includes the stalwart Horse Chestnut mare In Return, which is by the English Channel. According to a horse betting platform, Tall Oaks Farm was responsible for his breeding and foaling in Ontario, Canada, on February 11, 2014.

Channel Maker’s illustrious journey began in 2016 when he stepped onto the racing scene as a two-year-old under the guidance of trainer Daniel Vella, who was recently elected into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. In addition, he won the Vandal Stakes at Woodbine, displaying his potential.

Channel Maker amassed an impressive list of victories from 2016 to 2023 throughout his eight-year racing career. Furthermore, these achievements stand as a testament to his skill and determination.
