MILTON, February 15, 2024 – In this year’s first edition of ‘Fast Five,’ Woodbine Mohawk Park driver Tyler Borth shares a handful of insights into his life on and off the track.

After spending 10 years successfully competing at Ontario’s ‘B’ tracks, Borth made Woodbine Mohawk Park his home base in 2023. His 414 wins were second-most in Canada last year.

“My career has always been decent, but this is next level”, Borth remarked in reflection of his 2023 results. “My first year [at Mohawk Park] was better than I ever thought it would be.”

What is your most memorable 2023 win?

“I would have to say I have two, Ghostly Casper in the [OSS $300,000 three-year-old colt and gelding trot] Super Final and Elodie Hanover in the Whenuwishuponastar.”

Do you have a race you dream of winning?

“Definitely the Hambletonian. I grew up training trotters, and I’m always trying just to buy trotters to have in my barn, so the Hambletonian is the goal.”

Can you pick a favourite horse you’ve ever driven?

“I would say Emmetts Buddy, and lately Amigo Volo. Amigo Volo is just like a little sports car – he’s got a nice mouth on him, he’s perfect to drive, and he’s also got $2.4 million in earnings.”

What job would you have pursued if you weren’t in the horse racing industry?

“Professional hunter. I’d have lots of land and go hunting as often as I could.”

What’s on your TV these days?

“Taken with Liam Neeson – I like those three movies. I go on Netflix, and whatever Liam Neeson is in, I’ll watch it. TV-wise, I like watching anything UFC-related.”
