With a perfect 2-for-2 day Friday, Steve Asmussen picked up career wins 9,444 and 9,445. That moved him into a tie with Dale Baird for the most wins of all-time by a North American-based trainer.
Asmussen began his day with a win at Saratoga, taking home the honors in the fourth race with Jalen Journey (With Distinction). About 1 hour and 45 minutes later the Hall of Fame trainer drew even with Baird when Shanghai's Dream (Shanghai Bobby) won a $30,000 claimer at Ellis.
With 14 starters on what will be a busy Saturday afternoon for the Asmussen stable, the record is likely to fall.
