ALREADY the most successful reinsman of all time, Dave Palone chalked up another milestone.
Thanks to his victory with Outburst at The Meadows last night, Palone has reached 18,000 wins!
In comparison, only two drivers in the Southern Hemisphere – Chris Alford and Gavin Lang – have won more than 6000 races.
“It’s pretty gratifying,” Palone said. “I’m starting to reflect on all the years, all the hard work and all the things that had to go right.
“I’ve been very lucky — pretty much injury free although I’ve had some serious accidents. But I was able to bounce back and have all the great opportunities I’ve had.”
Palone’s career has been filled with milestones, including his induction to the Harness Racing Hall of Fame and earnings of more than $135million.
