Record-breaking win number moves to 1,189
« Return to News
Five months into 2008 and it seems Tim Tetrick can’t stop winning races—last year. Because of various positive tests on horses in 2007 that have since altered some previously-noted official finishes, Tetrick’s record-breaking win total of 1,188 is now recorded at 1,189 victories.
Overall, Tetrick’s numbers have risen by one win and decreased by one second-place finish and one third-place finish. His stats now read: 4,728 starts, 1,189 wins, 801 seconds and 604 thirds. His purse earnings have risen to $18,350,047, an increase of $7,680 from the numbers noted at the end of 2007.
Two of the latest three changes over the past few weeks occurred as a result of the resolution of positive tests at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs and Dover Downs.
In early March, Tetrick lost a victory when his horse Hang Time, trained by James McGuire, was disqualified from first to ninth following a positive test for an excess level of flunixin in a race at Pocono April 27, 2007.
