When driver Jimmy Marohn, Jr. met trainer  Danny Gill last year the sparks began to fly.  Marohn was a proven talent in the sulky, and Gill, a newcomer at the Mighty M, was an unknown entity. But when driver and trainer hooked- up the two proved to be dynamite together. Marohn won the driving title while Gill prevailed in the training ranks.

 

Bob Lounsbury’s horses are hard to beat at Monticello Raceway attested by the fact that the outstanding trainer has harnessed  75 winners  in 214 starts, led by the incredible Tracy’s Song who has run her consecutive win streak to 18.
