Northfield, OH  --- Greg Grismore scored his 7,000th career victory aboard Nehemiah on Tuesday (May 29) night. 

Grismore and Nehemiah didn’t get the easiest of journeys to score his milestone victory. Nehemiah was parked every step of the mile and had to sustain a three-wide bid around Lucky Match (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) before clearing at the top of the stretch and fending off late pressure from Dundee Dan (Wes Hershberger). Nehemiah ($17.00) is owned by Ohioans Rosy Weaver  Curtis Grismore. Weaver also trained the winner.

After the race Grismore said, “It’s a huge thrill doing it on my son’s horse.  It was probably the biggest thrill of my career.”

Grismore grew up in Pandora, Ohio, and started in the business as a teenager working with his father, Mark. He has driven at many racetracks throughout his illustrious career including stints at tracks on the East Coast. Grismore scored his first driving victory in 1987 and to date, 2007 was his winningest season with just over $5 million in earnings.

Grismore’s biggest scores include victories in the Cleveland Classic (Won The West, 2007) and the Jugette (Good News Lady, 2008).
