Superstar Down Under Harness racing driver relocates to North America.

Australian driver Todd McCarthy has moved himself to the Northern Hemisphere to pursue his driving career.

Todd is very familiar with the North American style of racing with brother Andrew McCarthy being permanently based in the states as a driver and other brother Luke McCarthy has had stints in America.

Todd was very quick to kick things off and in his first 4 days of driving he has had 13 drives for 3 winners.

Two of those winners were aboard former Down Under horses and the third was for Down Under trainer Nifty Norman. 

His first win was at Chester aboard Soho Wallstreet A, a Four Starzzz Shark 8yo who won in 1:51.2 in an $8,800 pace for trainer Tom Shay.

This race was a Down Under trifecta with Tact Tate N finishing 2nd and Anythingforlove A in 3rd. 

His next win came soon after at Pocono with Marloe Hanover a 3yo Captaintreacherous mare, who paced 1:51.1 to win the $35,000 second division of the Pennsylvania All Stars for Down Under trainer Nifty Norman. 

He then finished the week strong on Sunday when we won with Down Under mare Its Mesmerise N (American Ideal) in an $11,200 pace at Pocono in 1:52.0 for trainer Darren Cassar.

Over the next four days Todd McCarthy is entered for 20 drives. Which looks to be a great way to boost the start of his North American Harness Driving career. He was previously living in Sydney, Australia.
