« Return to News
It was only fitting that after winning this first pari-mutel drive at Monticello Raceway, James "Jimmy" DeVaux won his 5,000th race also at his home track. The always humble DeVaux scored a wire-to-wire win with Sandy Hook Hanover in the last race of the afternoon. DeVaux also won two races prior in the card.
The 50-year-old DeVaux is atop the leader board at Monticello Raceway with 249 wins. He is also sixth in the nation among leading dash-winning drivers with 410 wins. His mounts have earned over $2 million in purses thus far this year, he is also the third leading driver at Saratoga Raceway with 161 wins. (Monticello)
