Yannick Gingras posted his 5,000th career driving victory when he piloted Dry Gulch to the winner's circle in the fourth race on Friday afternoon (May 9) at Harrah's Philadelphia.

The win was the first of five on the matinee card for Gingras.

Gingras is a third-generation horseman who grew up on a farm in Quebec. He followed in the footsteps of Stephane Bouchard, Daniel Dube and Luc Ouellette, leaving his native Quebec to conquer the United States via Yonkers Raceway, and just like them, he was chosen as the Rising Star Award winner by the United States Harness Writers Association in 2003.

Gingras has finished among the top 10 money-winning drivers in North America in each of the last eight years, finishing second in both 2012 and 2013. He posted a career high 537 victories last year, which ranked him eighth among the continent's best.

Gingras was congratulated for reaching the career milestone before Meadowlands Racetrack's evening card by CEO and General Manager Jason Settlemoir (pictured above).
