When harness racing driver Mark MacDonald reached his lofty 5,000 victory milestone at Yonkers Raceway he did so with the pacing mare Midnight Mass.

The 33-year-old MacDonald, a native of Charlottetown, PEI, was a Toronto circuit standout for years.

He migrated stateside, making Yonkers his base of operation since 2012.

MacDonald's resume, which began with a win behind Make it Music in a "quarter claimer" at Rideau Carleton Raceway in June of 1997, includes personal bests in 2006 of wins (745) and purses (more than $10.1 million).

He won the Little Brown Jug with Mr. Feelgood, added a pair of Breeders Crowns (2007 Mare Pace-Moving Pictures and 2011 3-Year-Old Colt/Gelding Pace-Betterthancheddar) a North America Cup (2010-Sportswriter) and a pair of O'Brien Awards as Canada's leading driver.

His career purse earnings exceed $60.6 million.
