Driven To Succeed

Inverness, Nova Scotia native Damian MacLellan was introduced to Standardbreds by his father at a very young age - it became a passion they enjoyed together. When his dad fell ill and eventually passed away, in 2015, it was Damian and his older brother Donald that took charge of the family horse, Albert Town, and saw to it that everything ran smoothly. Now, at 19-years of age, Damian is carrying on his family’s legacy in the sport, and after winning his pari-mutuel debut as a driver in PEI last spring, he recently won in his first Ontario start as well, at London’s Western Fair. It’s pretty safe to say that his father would be proud. By Melissa Keith.
