BENSALEM, Pa., March 19 (UPI) -- Jockey Anthony Black won the 5,200th race of his career, aboard Smart Tori in the ninth race at Parx Racing in Bensalem, Pa., and promptly retired.
"The reality really hasn't sunk in, but I said I would and I am sticking with it," said Black, 61, whose first win came at Liberty Bell Park, a now-closed track in nearby Philadelphia, in 1970. Black was just out of high school at the time.
Black added, "The best part is I did it on my son's horse."
Smart Tori, owned by Black's son Anthony, paid $4.40 to win, $2.60 to place and $2.20 to show on Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
