How did you get into harness racing?

My mother and father were both involved in harness racing throughout my life. My father has owned horses for as long as I can remember, and my mom has family in Ontario/BC that still are actively involved.

How long have you been a driver / trainer?

I have been trainer for just over 1 year. 1 season in MB under my belt.

In your opinion what is the biggest innovation the sport has seen since you began racing?

I think the obvious answer is racebikes / wheels. It is incredible how fast new and more improved models are coming out. It is like a cell phone, just when you think you have the best model.. someone else releases something better. Further to that, I think the breeding program everywhere has become a lot more analytical and programs and breeding models have been developed for speed. We see an animal in 2016 that we didn’t see 20 or 30 years ago. Going a mile sub 1:50 is a common occurrence, I am sure we will break the 146 barrier sooner than later too.
