Escape the Wind wins #50

One of the true class acts in harness racing is 9 year old Escape the Wind. He won his 50th race today at Woodbine, and now stands at 166-50-19-22 for $1.96M earned. I remember his first start like it was yesterday. You could tell he had some go as he stormed from 10th to be 2nd. Only four months or so later Roger had him in the Breeders Crown. He survived an absolutely horrid trip to be second, almost running down the winner. Since that time he has suffered through a heart problem and a few other minor issues, but like most class animals he gets his share of wins between the troubles. Congratulations to Roger Mayotte on this milestone.
