John Campbell, harness racing's all-time leading money winning driver with more than $285 million in career earnings, returns to the sulky on Friday night at the Meadowlands.
Campbell has been out of action for six weeks due to a fractured collarbone sustained in a non-racing accident. He has drives in nine of the 13 (two of those are restricted to amateur drivers) races on Friday and a full slate on Saturday as well.
"I'm certainly looking forward to getting back to racing horses," Campbell said. "I got a really good report from the doctor this last visit. Strength and mobility are back to where I was before the break. I've been training some the past few weeksto get back in the swing.
"I'm back in time to get some work in before the 3 year olds start up and stakes season gets underway, so if I had to miss the timing was good."
Campbellwill add strength to the "Legends" team in the current Drivers' Tournament that pits the established Meadowlands drivers against the up and comers who have been anointed as "Phenoms" for the purpose of this contest. Corey Callahan is another welcome addition to the"Legends" side of the ledger upon his return from a trip to Australia. (Meadowlands)
