MILTON, July 27, 2020 – James MacDonald leaned back and had his pictured taken five-times on Monday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
The Guelph, Ontario reinsman had a drive in all 11 of Monday’s races and came through with a big night, posting five-wins, a pair of third-place finishes and 11 top-five finishes.
MacDonald captured his first drive of the evening with Ben Wallace trained sophomore trotter Life Is A Feast. The next win would come in the fourth-race with eight-year-old claiming pacer Julerica ($3) for trainer Anthony Montini.
The largest price of MacDonald’s five-winners came in the sixth-race with five-year-old claiming pacer Goldinthebadlands ($28.70) for trainer Mitch Tierney.
MacDonald capped off the Monday card by sweeping the ‘Late Double’ with seven-year-old pacer Icy Blue Scooter ($6.90) for Shawn Steacy and five-year-old pacer Cinnamack ($12.40) for Bill Budd.
The five-win night gives MacDonald 63 wins this season at Woodbine Mohawk Park and vaults him up to sixth in the driver’s standings.
MacDonald will look to carry the momentum from Monday over to Tuesday, as he is scheduled to compete in eight-races at Mohawk Park. Post time is 7 p.m.
