2 — Al Borak from Newberry, Michigan.
Al is a detail man who’s learned to read dogs, and how to take care of them. His special talent is preparing young dogs to be world-class racers, something he plans to do this year with a talented group of youngsters from Magnusson’s kennel. “Any dog team Al drives emerges better for having him behind them,” says Lloyd Gilberston. “I expect a steady, consistent race from Al, and a strong finish. I will thoroughly enjoy watching his race.”
