While the rest of the nation prepared to enjoy patriotic pyrotechnic displays on the Fourth of July, fans at Scarborough Downs were treated to fireworks of a different kind when driver David Ingraham turned in a stellar three-win performance en route to scoring the 7500th driving win of his career.

Ever the family man, Ingraham achieved the milestone while driving a veteran campaigner named Jay Bees Grin N who, fittingly enough, is co-owned by his daughter, Kelsie Case Ingraham. The win was a milestone for the racehorse, too, as the 40th victory in the 11-year-old standardbred’s career.

A native of Lewiston, Ingraham got his start on the Pine Tree Circuit before becoming a fixture at Yonkers Raceway and later at Pompano Park. In recent years, he and his wife, Kelly Case, have split their time between winter campaigns at Pompano and summer sojourns in their native State of Maine.

Live harness racing is featured three days a week at Scarborough Downs, with 4:30 p.m. twilight cards slated for Thursdays and Saturdays and popular Sunday matinees at 1:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.ScarboroughDowns.com.
