Timothy A. "Tim" Tetrick, born November 22, 1981 in Flora, Illinois,[1] is an American Harness Racing driver. Tim started driving Standardbreds at a very young age and on November 27, 2007 broke the record of number of wins (1,077) in a single year. Tim drove his 1,078th winner at Dover Downs in Delaware on the way to recording 1,189 wins that year.[2]

Tetrick won the 2012 Hambletonian Stakes with his horse Market Share.[3] He won his 8,000th career race in March 2014.[4] He was voted Harness Tracks of America Driver of the Year for 2007, 2008, 2012, and 2013 by the US Harness Writers Association.

He underwent hip replacement surgery in early December, 2008 for a congenital hip problem, but was back competing by late January 2008.

Tetrick's colors are green and gold. He is also recognizable on the track by the bright yellow wheels on the sulky he drives. He has been a resident of Runnemede, New Jersey.[5]
