Bouchard set to defend Maple Leaf title Monday at Mighty M
« Return to News
However, Bouchard’s competition this time around appears to be somewhat tougher than it was four years ago. Among the reinsmen Bouchard will have to contend with are Richard Simard and Denis St. Pierre, both of whom have won thousands of races.
Simard, who plans on racing here and at Tioga Downs this summer, brings with him 5,291 career victories and multiple driving titles at various Canadian and American racetracks. And St. Pierre, who owns a few driving titles of his own, has 2,783 lifetime wins and is currently among the driving leaders at Saratoga Raceway.
Rounding out the field of Canadian heritage drivers are: Terry Finch (Southwinds Scarlet-post two); Bruce Borden (Yasmin Hanover-post four); Mike Doherty (A and G’s Flirt- post seven) and Jacques Primeau (Frosty Flake-post eight)
The Maple Leaf pace is slated as race nine on the 11-race card on Monday. (Monticello)
