A Friday night hat-trick at Hoosier Park lifted driver Trace Tetrick to the 4,000 win plateau.

With wins earlier in the evening aboard Dont Say Goodby and Serious Major, Tetrick reached the milestone with Ron Burke trainee Luvnmysharkaway in the night's 13 race.

Born into a horse racing family, Tetrick grew up around horses and began his career on the southern Illinois county fair circuit. Harness racing has always been a family affair for Tetrick as his parents, Tom D. and Mary Alice, have operated a successful stable throughout the Midwest for many years. The Geff, Illinois native started his driving career in 2003 and has since surpassed the $28 million mark in purse earnings in the bike.

Tetrick recorded his first win at Hoosier Park in 2006 and has been a mainstay atop Hoosier Park’s leaderboard ever since. In 2008, Tetrick became the youngest driver or jockey to ever win a title at Hoosier Park after garnering 117 victories that season. The all-time leading driver in Hoosier Park history, Tetrick has won five driving titles at Hoosier and captured his third straight in 2016.
