Oullette returns to driving action

“I schooled a few horses last week, and I didn’t have any pain,” Ouellette said. “I was supposed to do the same thing on Monday morning at Mohawk, but then I thought that if I felt good enough to go behind the gate in schoolers that I should go to the doctor to see if he thought I could go back to work full-time instead. I was fortunate enough to get in and see him at 2:00 p.m. and he gave me the all-clear to return.
“The sheet has already been made for Thursday at Mohawk, but I might pick up a drive or two and then look for more work over the weekend when everyone knows I am back,” Ouellette added.
Ouellette, who was fourth in the driver standings on the Woodbine Entertainment Group circuit when he was injured, has remained in that spot despite the time missed, and he is also only 32 wins away from joining harness racing’s 8,000 win club. (WEG)
