And now he is applying for a Canadian working visa so he can train with and drive for Team Allard on a full-time basis.

“I was on vacation in Bermuda last winter,” Team Allard’s Rene Allard told the Harnesslink.com website recently [Sept 28].

“And we heard there was harness racing with trotting ponies in Bermuda so we decided to check it out. I saw Kiwon drive in a few races and he caught my eye. We talked and I invited him to come to Quebec this summer.”

Team Allard, which also races in the US, has applied for a permit that would allow Mr. Waldron to drive in that country as well.

“Now I’m waiting on my paperwork for the States,” he told Harnesslink.com. “So, then I can work for Rene and hopefully become one of the best drivers around.”
