McKnight Earns 1,000th Career Win

Friday, August 07, 2015  By: Standardbred Canada


Gorden McKnight scored his 1,000th career driving win on Friday night at Grand River Raceway.


The London, Ont. resident steered trotting mare Edna Loral to her 20th lifetime victory off a three-hole trip in race 10, finishing a half-length the best in 2:02.2 outside of the pocket-pulling Gracies Harmony and the 1-9 pacesetter Brontewine.


McKnight also trains and owns the seven-year-old daughter of Amigo Hall, who returned backers $24.90 for a $2 wager.


The 51-year-old reinsman also has 461 training wins to his credit.


Shadows Wonder took advantage of the passing lane to win the evening's $7,500 Fillies & Mares Preferred 3 Pace in 1:57.3 by one and a half lengths over pacesetter Pictonian Sareta and the first-over favourite Double Joy.


Canada's season leading driver Alfie Carroll worked out the pocket trip aboard the four-year-old Shadow Play mare, who has won back-to-back races at Grand River and notched her third victory this year in 12 starts for trainer Dr. Ian Moore and co-owners Nancy Moore of Guelph, Ont. and William Shearer of Brookfield, N.S.
