Australian Harness Racing Awards - All Time
Vancleve Awards - Trotters

  VANCLEVE (1871)
Was a one time holder of the Australian mile record for trotters.  Vancleve later sired the immortal FRITZ (TR TT2:13), an all time
trotting champion.  Vancleve's progeny won him siring titles in Australia and New Zealand, a remarkable feat considering he did
not stand at stud in New Zealand.
