Tim Horton's Antigonish

Clare MacDonald posts 1,500th career victory at Truro Raceway

Another milestone in the stellar harness racing career of Antigonish native Clare MacDonald. MacDonald posted her 15-hundredth career win at the Atlantic Sires Stakes in Truro on Tuesday. MacDonald, North America’s top active female driver sent three-year-old trotter Mr. Finlay Ridge to an early lead in his division and won by more than three open lengths.

It’s the gelding’s second consecutive Stakes win. MacDonald trains and shares ownership of the horse with breeder Arnold Rankin and Ian Tate.

Among female North American drivers, only the late Bea Farber has more driving wins than MacDonald. Farber had 1,801 victories in her career.
