MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - The awards keep coming for world champion pacer Somebeachsomewhere.

The horse has been voted the unanimous winner of the 2008 Cam Fella Award, named in honour of the standardbred horse Cam Fella.

Somebeachsomewhere all but rewrote the record books by setting a seasonal earnings record of more than $2.5 million, while winning 14 of 15 races and pacing three world record miles.

The award, presented by Standardbred Canada, recognizes ``extreme recent meritorious service to the Canadian harness racing industry.''

It's far from the first accolade for Somebeachsomewhere, who was also voted the winner of the O'Brien award as Canada's top three-year-old pacing colt, and is still in the running for horse of the year.

Cam Fella won 56 races and earned over $2 million in the early 1980s.

Based at a stable in Bible Hill, N.S., Somebeachsomewhere's owners will receive the award at a banquet Jan. 31 in Mississauga, Ont.
