Augusta, ME --- One of Maine’s top harness racing drivers and veteran horsemen has reached a career milestone. After achieving his first win in 1977 at the Skowhegan State Fair, Gary Mosher can now be called Mr. 6,000 after piloting So What Who Cares to career victory number 6,000 at the Topsham Fair on Monday (Aug. 3) in the sixth race.

The horse may be named So What Who Cares (owned by Victoria Leighton and trained by Marc Tardif), but this career milestone should not be taken so lightly.

Gary Mosher, who just turned 56 years old on the Fourth of July, had family and friends on-hand to witness this momentous occasion. Yannick Gingras, one of the world’s top harness drivers and brother-in-law to Gary, attended this agricultural fair to congratulate the reinsman.

Mosher took his driving talents outside of his home state in the 1980s and found quick success on the New York circuit, including at Yonkers Raceway where he developed a craft and driving style of his own. Mosher returned to Maine in the 1990s to be back with his family.

He continues as a force to be reckoned with as a successful owner, trainer and driver on the Maine circuit. During his driving career, Mosher has amassed more than $25 million in purse winnings along with those 6,000 wins.
