Wind Surfer posted the 50th win of his racing career on Wednesday at Northfield Park.

The 12-year-old veteran, with 277 career starts, also has 44 seconds and 40 third place finishes. Wind Surfer (Muscles Yankee-Windsurfing V C) has career earnings of $946,612 with a lifetime mark of 1:53.4 at The Meadows at age four. The trotter’s richest win was in a $52,000 Open Trot at Yonkers Raceway in 2011. Wind Surfer is a well-traveled campaigner -- his 50 wins have been spread across six different racing surfaces in four states.

Wind Surfer started from post five. He was content near the back while his competition posted fractions of :28.3, :57.4 and 1:27.3, before rallying in the stretch to best his nearest competitor by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:58. He returned $7.00 to win.
