Suffolk Downs 2011 Leading Jockey-Trainer-Owner
EAST BOSTON, MA - Perennial powers Tammi Piermarini, John Rigattieri and Monarch Stables took home year-end honors at Suffolk Downs as the track concluded its 2011 live racing season on Saturday before a Breeders’ Cup Day crowd of 6,521.
Piermarini amassed 109 wins to capture her second straight meet title and the third of her career at Suffolk Downs. The 44-year-old mother of three won with 20% of her mounts for earnings of $1,163,099. Jacqueline Davis was second with 82 wins. Piermarini made history on August 22, becoming just the fifth woman in Thoroughbred racing history to reach the 2,000-win mark. She has since moved into fourth place on the all-time win list for female riders. Piermarini will be taking her tack to Turf Paradise.
Monarch Stables, third in last year’s owner standings, made 35 trips to the winner’s circle to garner its first Suffolk Downs title since 2006. Charles Fontana was second with 16 wins.
