MILTON, September 25, 2018 – Driver Mike Saftic joined elite company by surpassing $100 million in career earnings on Monday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
The 56-year-old reinsman entered Monday’s action just $5,895 away from the significant milestone with six-drives on the 11-race card.
Saftic earned $6,180 in his opening four drives of the evening, surpassing the $100 million mark with a third-place finish behind five-year-old pacer The Loan Ranger in the fifth-race.
