JIMMY MAROHN SCORES HIS 2000TH VICTORY
Quietly and without much fanfare, on March 1 Jimmy Marohn, Jr. reined the 2000th winner of his career. It came behind Edward Hall’s trotter, JN Sydney, when the 5-year-old Mr. Lavec mare, trained by Danny Gill, toured the Monticello Raceway oval in a time of 2:02.2 to finish one length ahead of Sin To Win (Austin Siegelman).
Last season Marohn’s 271 wins at the Mighty M topped all other reinsmen and Gill’s 118 training victories won him leading trainer honors.
This season Marohn has driven 54 winners thus far which ranks him second behind Bruce Aldrich Jr.’s 63. Gill, on the other hand is atop the training leaderboard currently with 30 wins.
