Tetrick Breaks More Records

Tim Tetrick, 25, continued to win races throughout the month of June at a rate unlike any harness racing driver in history, picking up a record 120 victories for the month and increasing his season total to 601. Tetrick broke his own record for triumphs in a single calendar month, which he established in April 2007 with 110 trips to the winnerís circle.

"June was pretty much the same as the month before; a lot of luck and getting good horses," said Tetrick, who closed June with a seven-win day by picking up three victories at Pocono Downs and four at the Meadowlands Racetrack. "Itís hard, Iím working at it. I havenít had much time to sit back and relax. Iíve been really fortunate; itís amazing where Iím at. I won four races in a night at the Meadowlands and I never thought Iíd win four in a week there let alone in one night.

Tetrick, who became the youngest driver to win a million-dollar race when he captured the Art Rooney Pace with Southwind Lynx at Yonkers Raceway on June 2, 2007, leads all North American drivers in earnings this year with $6.9 million. He is on his way to becoming the youngest driver to have a $10 million season and could become the first driver since Jack Moiseyev in 1991 to lead in wins and earnings in the same year.

"I donít think anyone can fathom a 25-year-old doing this; Iím not really believing itís happening," Tetrick said, laughing. "Itís hard to get work like that when youíre 25, work that can get you to where you need to be. Iíve always dreamed of being at this level. Itís great to be here."

Walter Case Jr. holds the record for wins in a single year, with 1,077 set in 1998, but Tetrick is ahead of Caseís pace that season. Case had 555 wins at the end of June 1998.
