Longtime horseman Maurice Danko of Simcoe, Ont. passed away Wednesday morning in hospital at the age of 69.
Danko is survived by wife Joyce, daughters Lori and Sue (Gangell), son Maurie and three grandchildren.
An owner and trainer for many years, one of Danko's biggest success stories in harness racing was Jayport Worthy Vic. Purchased for $6,300 as a yearling in the fall of 1984, the Worthy Bowl colt set numerous track records in a 10-win rookie campaign that netted him nearly $100,000 in earnings and CTA divisional honours.
Further details on arrangements will be posted when available.
Please join SC in offering condolences to the family and friends of Maurice Danko.
