Hall of Fame driver Cat Manzi, who suffered multiple pelvic fractures in a racing accident at Freehold Raceway on September 6, 2013, will return to action on Friday, November 29.

It is a Thanksgiving wish come-true for the Manzi family.

“Cat has been cleared by the doctor (today) and will be back driving on Friday,” Ellen Manzi, his wife, texted this morning.

Manzi has been preparing for his return, awaiting only the release from the doctor.

“He has been to Pocono, warming up horses for Aaron Lambert, and has been training for Carl Cito,” Ellen noted.

Manzi, 63, is the third highest all-time dash-winningest driver in harness racing history with 14,789 career victories.

Manzi is listed on Beauxarts Hanover, No. 5 in Friday’s twelfth race at Freehold. He is expected to pick up additional mounts when driver changes are reported on Wednesday morning.

He also has a drive in the seventh race on Friday night at Yonkers.

“I’m always worried,” Ellen Manzi said, when asked about Cat’s return to the track. “But he is happy so that’s what matters.”
