Anthony MacDonald steered four winners on tonight's Fun & Frivolity Friday Night harness racing card at Grand River Raceway.

His victors included two for trainer William Borth.

In race six, betting favourite Biff managed a two-length score.

In race 11, it was Angus King in a gate-to-wire effort for his sixth win of the season.

MacDonald also won with Buckshot Austin in race seven from post seven for trainer Rene Bourassa and in race 10 from post seven with 6-1 shot Made To Glide for trainer Jeff Gillis.

MacDonald, 34, is a career winner of 1793 winners. He has driven horses to earnings in excess of $14.3 million.

Trainer Kim Matthews also scored a training double with back-to-back wins in races two and three.

Mike Whelan guided 10-year-old veteran Nobananas to his 38th career win, followed by pacer Kesons Avaia in her first win from 15 efforts this season.

Whelan rounded out the evening with a hat trick with the chestnut trotter Striking Style from the Rebecca Titus barn.

Grand River’s reigning reinsman Scott Coulter also picked up a hat trick with Kiasma, Notorious De Vie and St Lads Adonis in the go-home pace.

The track also hosted eight kids ages 10 to 13 in the Ontario Harness Racing Youth Camp (part of the Hands On Horse Program) in two exhibition races.

The program’s newest addition, 11-year-old retiree Killean Sweep, swept both races, granting wins to aspiring drivers Antonios Ninos, 11, of Alma, ON and Jessie Gordon, 10, of Brampton, ON.
