Steve Condren won his 6,000th career race at Woodbine Racetrack Monday night, guiding Make It Brief to the milestone victory.

Condren, 47, has won at least 200 or more races on the Woodbine Entertainment circuit for 18 of the past 22 years during which he has won multiple driving titles. He also won an O'Brien Award as Canada's 1997 Driver of the Year and was runner-up in 1998.

"I was fortunate to deal with some really good people early in my career," said Condren, who is fourth in this year's WEG driver standings with 136 wins. "Burnsie (John Burns), (Tom) Artandi and Freddy Hoffman are some of the guys who helped jump start my career, and of course I've done a lot of driving for Bob McIntosh and Brad Maxwell. There are so many other smaller guys, it's hard to thank them all. I just can't say enough good about them."

Condren is the 28th driver in history to reach 6,000 wins and his purse earnings of more than $87 million place him 10th all-time.
