Scarborough, Maine (Saturday, December 07, 2013) Driver Shawn Thayer mastered the mud at Scarborough Downs on Saturday (12/7) to become the latest member of the Mr. 1,000 Club. A native of Hermon, Maine, Thayer has been a regular participant along the Pine Tree Circuit for two decades now and was the driving champion at Scarborough Downs during the 2012 meeting.

The benchmark win came with a member of Thayer's own stable roster, ITSALLABOUTMIKE. The six-year-old son of Dragon Again was a prolific winner this year, and secured his 16th win of the season. The pacer is owned by Marc Reynolds of Hermon, Maine.

As is the tradition at Scarborough Downs, Thayer was joined in the trackside winner's circle by his fellow drivers and fans who offered a hearty congratulations to their compatriot.

Thayer will help close out the meeting at Scarborough Downs as we enter the last two weekends of the season, racing Saturdays and Sundays with a 12:05 pm post time. Closing day is Sunday, December 22, and will feature our annual Standardbred retirement ceremony for 14-year olds.
