The Inverness Raceway welcomed two new harness racers to the track this past month when Zach Mullins and Leander Beaton both competed in their first set of races in Inverness.
Mullins, a 20-year-old from Inverness has grown up around the Inverness Raceway all of his life. Shadowing his father Richie Mullins, a harness racer of over 35 years, Zach learned to love the sport at an early age and began jogging horses when he was only 10-years-old.
I always thought I’d end up racing,” said Mullins. “I’ve been into the harness racing game since I was about four years old, I first got involved with my dad’s horses at the race track. I always had an interest in horse racing, and from being around the racetrack over the years, my interest grew. I have been travelling all around different places, driving different horses, training and looking after different horses.”
