"Harness racing is my passion, and has provided me with a lifetime of dreams and aspirations," 25-year-old owner, trainer and driver Nick Boyd has told the Fergus-Elora News Express.
'Ralphie,' as he is known to many of his friends, grew up in the business and has been in and out of shed rows for as long as he can remember.
The Fergus-Elora News Express inundated Boyd with a full gamut of questions -- the answers to which reveal quite a bit about the passionate resident of Guelph, Ont.
One of the questions Boyd answered was what the favourite part of his job is. "Doing what I love daily," he answered, "because most people are never afforded the opportunity."
When it comes to the training side of the business, Boyd explained that he currently has 12 head in training. In his career, Boyd has sent horses out to 755 races, with his pupils recording 69 wins, 95 second-place finishes and 73 thirds, good for over $656,000 in purses.
