Jim Morand is just 11 wins away from his 9,000th driving victory

Harness racing driver Jim Morand is quickly approaching his 9,000th career win and now needs just 11 victories to reach that impressive milestone.

Only 13 other drivers in the history of harness racing have ever achieved that milestone. they are Dave Palone, Herve Filion, Cat Manzi, Tony Morgan, Dave Magee, Walter Case, Jr., Billy Parker, Jr., John Campbell, David Miller, Mike Lachance, Jack Moiseyev, Kevin Wallis and Peter Wrenn.

on the training side, Edgar Clarke, who last raced at Tioga Downs, is just one win away from his 1,000th training victory and Roger Hammer, known perhaps more for his driving, is only 19 wins away from his 2,000th training triumph.

Below that are trainers who may be approaching win milestones.

USTA started tracking trainer statistics in 1991, so the trainers listed in green may have had training starts and wins prior to 1991, so the Life Wins column for those trainers may not be accurate.
