Fourteen-year-old Terror Of Thetrack posted his 40th career harness racing win in his 499th start in the sixth race on Wednesday at MGM Northfield Park. 

He went to post as the longest shot on the board at 44-1.  The classy veteran, who faces mandatory retirement on January 1, 2021, was the victor of the fifth leg of the evening’s Pick 5 where one lucky bettor cashed for a whopping $29,677.00.  The payoff was astronomical because the other four winners in the sequence carried odds of 4-5, 7-5, 4-5 and 7-2.  

Terror Of The Track started from post three and let his competition carve out fractions of :27.1, :56.1 and 1:26.  He then looped from the back and scored by a head in 1:57.1

Keith Kash Jr trains and drives the pacer for his wife Melinda.  Keith and Melinda have raced Terror Of Thetrack for nearly a decade.  Terror Of Thetrack has not only been an active member of the Kash’s racing stock, but has also become a family pet.   

“I have to admit, this win is pretty emotional for me,” admitted Keith Kash Jr.  “We have had this horse a long time.  I don’t just race horses, I truly love the animals.”

Wednesday’s score increased Terror Of Thetrack’s career bankroll to $198,164.  The son of Western Terror is in-to-go in Northfield’s 15th race on Monday (December 21) from post-three.  Monday’s race will be Terror Of Thetrack’s 500th and final career race.

After Monday’s race Terror Of Thetrack hopes to join the Summit County (Ohio) Mounted Sheriff Department to begin his next career.
