Bruce Ranger, the winningest driver in the 46-year history of Pompano Park, has shipped north for summer season competition at Tioga Downs in along with his stable's trainer of record, Stewart Nemiro. Ranger departs South Florida as the track's top driver again this year.
Tioga is a new destination for Ranger in the summer months due to the discontinuation of racing at Rockingham Park, where several of his 2009 stable members such as Silvers Luck and Kid Conway were winners just before shipping to Pompano last September.
Ranger amassed 223 wins in the bike from 1,012 drives at Pompano during the 2009-2010 campaign for purse earnings of almost $1.2 million. Though Wally Hennessey recorded a triple on the April 26 program, Ranger still leads by 39 wins in the drivers' dash title chase. Hennessey would need to win over $160,000 in purses by the end of the current meet on May 22 to catch Ranger for the drivers' cash earnings title. (Pompano)
