Gingras to Drive Both Mission Brief and Pinkman in Hambo Elims

Yannick Gingras said this morning he will drive both Pinkman and Mission Brief on Hambletonian Day in their respective heats, and that he has been given permission by trainers Ron Burke and Jimmy Takter to do so.

Gingras is the regular driver of both Pinkman and the filly Mission Brief, who loom as the top two contenders for the Hambletonian. Gingras is banking on there being heats, which will be required only if at least 14 horses are entered. It appears that number will be reached.
