GOSHEN, New York — Owner Joe Thomson and the horses Deweycheatumnhowe and Somebeachsomewhere have been inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame.

Thomson's Winbak Farms in Maryland, Delaware, New York and Ontario have produced horses that have won 32,781 races and $289 million in winnings. The farm breeds about 400 horses a year.

Deweycheatumnhowe was the only undefeated Hambletonian winner. Somebeachsomewhere was a star pacer.

Also inducted were broodmares Art's Vintage and Presidential Lady. The late trainer-driver Jimmy Jordan entered the Immortals Hall of Fame with the sire Garland Lobell.

The Communicators Corner of the Hall welcomed writers Kathy Parker and Bob Marks.
