"It's a pretty big thrill, it probably won't sink in for a couple of days. I'm just taking it all in right now."

Trot Insider caught up with Doug McNair after he captured his first title as Canada's Driver of the Year at the 2017 O'Brien Awards Black Tie Gala on Saturday, February 3 in Mississauga, Ont.

McNair celebrated a career year in 2017. The Guelph, Ont. resident, who was a finalist for this award in 2013, topped the charts in earnings for drivers in Canada last year with more than $5.9 million in purse money, and $6.5 million in earnings in North America while driving 325 winners. McNair was also the regular driver for O’Brien winners Stay Hungry, Bettors Up, and Sandbetweenurtoes.

Not only did McNair enjoy his best year ever on the track, his 2017 culminated with nuptials in November. McNair talks about marriage and more in the following post-O'Briens interview.

This is the second in a series of several post-event video interviews with O'Brien Award finalists, sponsored by Horse Racing Alberta.
