Wilmington, Del., September 17, 2012 — Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard notched his 3,000th career victory at Delaware Park today. The milestone win came in the seventh race when Augustin Stable’s Fugitive Angel won a seven-and-a-half-furlong turf allowance by a neck over six rivals.
“It feels good to get the milestone victory and it was nice that happened at Delaware Park,” said Sheppard.
At Delaware Park, Sheppard has won a total 32 stakes. He recorded his first Delaware Park stake win in 1971 when Wustenchef won both the Indian River Steeplechase Handicap and the Sussex Turf Handicap.
