Brandon Campbell 1,000th career win 1-2-15.jpg

Driver Brandon Campbell celebrated a career milestone on Friday night at Fraser Downs as his first victory of the New Year was also his 1,000th lifetime.

In the evening's fifth race, Campbell catch-drove Valerie Emerson and trainer Richard Remillard's four-year-old pacer Elska Min ($19.30) to a mild 8-1 upset victory in 1:59.4 over the sloppy track.

Leaving from the inside post, Campbell got away second behind Whiteliesnpromises off the gate, but was shuffled back as the parked Make Mine Five took over command and then Lisplaced moved up to apply first over pressure.

Campbell sent Elska Min, who was racing along the pylons in fourth place, to the outside near the third quarter mark then swept three-wide around the duelling leaders and pulled ahead in deep stretch to win by one and a quarter lengths. Lisplaced finished second with Make Mine Five taking third over Whiteliesnpromises.
