<P>24 MAY 2014 Q-RACING JOURNAL 28-30 at the Weber County Fairgrounds in Ogden, the 50th annual championships drew cutter racers from 14 participating associations in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. WCCCRA conducted its first world championships in 1965, when Orlin Moons team of Bar Prince and Pica Bar won on their home-club track at Pocatello, Idaho. The 2014 world championship was only the second for the Beehive State chariot club, which earned its first championship in 1974 with Jim Knight and Jerry Atkins Winners Circle Inc. team of Moon Bee and Noble Bars. Now Beehive has its second title. The Flying T, Cajun and Sandberg team comprises a couple of horses hooked together for the first time late this season. Ocean Runner and Spur N Dirty both came from the flat track. Not that it was the first time for either on chariots. Racing for the father-and-son team of Tim and Rod Parkinson and partner Leroy Johnson, Ocean Runner and then-stablemate Whos On First AJ won the 2012 world championship for Rigby, Idahos National association. Bred by Dennie and Kris Hill of Blackfoot, Idaho, Ocean Runner is one of eight winners from eight starters out of AB What A Runner, the world-record-setting and $1,342,389-earning Royal Quick Dash mare who won the 2002 All American Futurity (G1) and was that years champion 2-year-old and the following years champion 3-year-old filly. From eight starters, AB What A Runner has produced eight winners, including stakes-placed runners Lite My Fyre (by Walk Thru Fire, $22,280), KD Star (by Ocean Runaway, $20,503) and Whata Corona Runner (by Corona Cartel, $35,847). A winner of four of 22 races with earnings of $19,515, Ocean Runner now is 6. In May of last year, the gelding returned to the flat track, where on July 6, he won the Not that it made any difference to the winners. Ocean Runner, Spur N Dirty and their connections – the Flying T, Cajun Racing Stables and Sandberg Families – combined their teams and talents to bring Farmington, Utahs Beehive State chariot association its first world championship in 40 years. Nah, it shouldnt be a problem, said Flying Ts Danny Thomas, scanning the wet and heavy skies prior to the WCCCRA first-division championship, the trophy dash that determines the world championship. These two horses have always run really consistently – good tracks, bad tracks, whatever. Weve had some really bad tracks early this year. This is a winter sport, so theyre used to it, and theyve handled every kind of track theyve seen this year. With Jeff Sandberg at the lines, Ocean Runner and Spur N Dirty toured a muddy 440 yards in :22.29. Finishing second was Bruce Jenson, handling the JRW team from the Skyline association at Smithfield, Utah. Josh Theurer drove Owen Udys O-K Boys team of the Bear River club at Tremonton, Utah, to third in the title race. Theyve been exceptional horses, Thomas said. Theyve been sound as sound. Theyre the type of horses that go in the gate, stand up straight and they dont wallow around. They look down the track, theyre honest, they leave the latch exceptionally well and they finish just as good. They dont beat themselves, they dont have a flat spot. If anybody beats them, its because of us. Theyre just fast horses, really just honest-to-goodness wicked fast from start to finish. 50 Years and Counting MARKING A HALF-CENTURY OF COMPETITION, THE WCCCRA finals are conducted in a double-elimination format in five days of racing over two weekends. Held March 22-23 and Danny Thomas and Jeff Sandberg drive their Flying T, Cajun Racing & Sandberg Families chariot to the winners circle after the trophy dash.</p> <UL><LI><a
