A last-to-first rally with pacing mare Gias Surreal gave driver Trevor Henry career driving win 7,000 on Friday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Henry entered Friday’s card three wins shy of the 7,000 mark and recorded the “Hat-Trick” victory in Race 11 in upset fashion, scoring at odds of 12-1.
Gias Surreal will go down as winner 7,000 for Henry and it came in style. The 4-year-old mare, who is trained by Don Lindsey, was seventh and last turning for home and unleashed a furious stretch rally to sweep by her rivals late and take this week’s top class for pacing mares.
Henry’s other two victories on the card came with 5-year-old trotting mare Shes Got Pizazz and 5-year-old pacing mare Furiosa.
A leading driver across Ontario for many years, Henry has been a top driver at Woodbine Entertainment over the last several seasons and currently ranks fifth for wins (149) at Mohawk Park in 2020. His career best season for wins was 533 in 2012, while his highest earning season was $5.9 million in 2017.
Now a member of the 7,000 win club, Henry has driven the winners of $65 million over the course of his more than three-decade career. (WEG)
