Reinsman Bob McClure put on a show Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park by driving six winners on the 10-race card.
The Elora, Ont. resident had a drive in all 10 of Thursday's races and made a statement early by sweeping the opening three races on the card before earning his next three victories in the sixth race and the Late Double.
Adding to the impressive evening, McClure teamed up with six different trainers for his six-win performance.
McClure’s first win came with Barry Bird trained 3-year-old gelding R U Talkin ($3.20). He then completed his sweep of the evening’s first ‘Pick-3’ with 4-year-old gelded trotter P L Louigi ($13.60) for Matt Dupuis and 5-year-old pacing mare Sauble Bonnie ($3.30) for trainer Otis Hall.
The combination of McClure and Marty Fine has had success over the last few months and the duo connected in the sixth race with sophomore pacing colt Just Wave Goodbye ($4.90).
McClure wrapped up his huge night by sweeping the Late-Double with 4-year-old gelded pacer Arukidinme Cabbie ($7.90) for trainer Tony O’Sullivan and 8-year-old gelded pacer Avalanche Hanover ($7.10) for conditioner Richard Moreau.
Poised for a huge 2019, McClure is a finalist for the O’Brien Award as Canada’s Driver of the Year in 2018 after winning 328-races and posting a career-high $5.3 million in earnings.
McClure will look to carry the momentum gained from Thursday’s dominance into Friday evening’s card. He is scheduled to drive in nine of the evening’s 10 races. (WEG)
