Down Under harness racing driver wins 4 races at The Meadowlands early in his North American driving career.

Todd McCarthy had a night to remember on Saturday night when driving at The Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey. He steered home 4 winners from his full book of 13 drives on the night.

McCarthy’s quick success in the states should be no surprise to anyone that has watched him drive in Sydney, Australia, where he was the top driver at Menangle Park for the last five years.

His first win of the night came aboard the Katricia Adams trained A Major Omen in 1:52.2. He quickly backed up in the following race with Sombodyitreasure who made a mess of rivals to score in 1:49.4 for trainer Andrew Harris.

His next win was with former Down Under pacer Flying Even Bettor N for top trainer Tony Alanga. It was a thrilling finish but the Down Under horse and driver came out best in a time of 1:51.2. This race was also a Down Under quinella with Mister Rebbily A finishing in second for Down Under trainer Tahnee Camilleri.

McCarthy’s fourth win was with another Down Under pacer in The Bettormack N. The win made it a double for trainer Katricia Adams. McCarthy giving the son of Bettors Delight a beautiful trip throughout to get over top of leaders in 1:50.0 to win.

Todd McCarthy also had three other placings on the night. One where he teamed up with Down Under trainer Shane Tritton and another with Down Under pacer Italian Delight N.

When reflecting on the night McCarthy said, “I think for anyone in the harness racing industry, you look at America, The Meadowlands is the pinnacle. To crack one tonight and then to get a few more after that, it was pretty awesome.”. When asked how he would compare the American harness racing to the Australian harness racing he said, “The racing here is definitely faster and a little more aggressive, but so far it's been great and I'm really enjoying it."

On the Saturday night of racing at the Meadowlands there were 34 Down Under horses racing.
