In Kimberley Rinker's blog Harness Racing Insider, Tim Tetrick is the man of the hour. Last Thursday, Tetrick was in Maywood Park, Illinois to give away Tetrick bobblehead dolls and sign autographs.
“It’s great to be back home,” Tetrick said.
“I was very lucky to have a great year in 2007, and I’m really flattered by all the folks who’ve come out here tonight. I have to drive some horses Friday night at The Meadowlands (in New Jersey), but then I’ll be back to see you all again on Saturday, at Balmoral.”
Tetrick, just 26, is known in global harness racing circles as the Prairie State’s Boy Wonder. In 2007, this Geff, Ill. native set the racing world on fire, breaking records in both driving wins and earnings.
