Trainer Todd Pletcher earns 5,000th career victory
NEW YORK (AP) Trainer Todd Pletcher earned his 5,000th career victory at Aqueduct on Friday.
Microsecond scored a three-quarter length victory in the seventh race. He was ridden by Kendrick Carmouche and is owned by Mike Repole. Pletcher didn't saddle his landmark winner; he was in Lexington, Kentucky, for the Breeders' Cup.
"It's such a great tribute to the whole staff and a lot of people who put in so much hard work," Pletcher said, "but mainly it's about the horses."
The 53-year-old trainer has won five Triple Crown races and 11 Breeders' Cup races in his career.
