Stephane Bouchard reached the historic milestone while sitting behind trotter Lotto Winner.

The veteran reinsman is a multiple driving champion at Yonkers and Monticello raceways and has become a full time pilot at Saratoga in recent years.

The 47-year-old Bouchard reached the historic milestone while sitting behind trotter Lotto Winner (Credit Winner) for trainer Sam Schillaci. Lotto Winner was coming off a win by more than a dozen lengths last week when she just held on for a wire-to-wire score for Bouchard on Sunday’s matinee.

The Canadian native becomes a very rare driver to pilot as many as 8,000 winners in a career and isn’t close to being done yet. Bouchard, who finished second in the driver standings last season at Saratoga, is once again in the top five this year.

Bouchard was joined by friends and family for a presentation in the winner’s circle recognizing his terrific achievement.
