“I’ve been waiting for this for a long time,” the 48-year-old resident of Puslinch, Ont. said. He is an O’Brien Award finalist as Canada’s top trainer. “It’s a goal that I’ve tried to reach. Now that I have, I’ll just turn the page and hopefully wait for 5,000.”
Last year Moreau enjoyed a banner campaign when he led the nation in both wins and earnings. His stable posted 344 wins, while accumulating more than C$3.6 million in purses.
Also in 2012, the Quebec native captured his second Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) training title with 132 victories and was the leading dashwinner at Georgian Downs and Grand River Raceway.
Lifetime, Moreau’s troops have amassed more than C$31.6 million in purses.
