  • Hole's 2,000th win comes aboard Dr Bolt at Pimlico

    Hole's 2,000th win comes aboard Dr Bolt at Pimlico
    Taylor Hole, 43, picked up his 2,000th career victory aboard Dr Bolt in the sixth race at Pimlico Race Course on Friday. Dr Bolt, owned by Five Hellions Farm and trained by Donnovan Haughton, took the lead down the stretch from Puturseatbelton while covering 6 furlongs in 1 minute, 13.27 seconds. Dr Bolt returned $8.60. After the race, Hole was joined in the winner's circle by his fellow riders, friends and staff of the Maryland Jockey Club. "It's a little surreal," Hole said after the race of his milestone. "I took my time getting here but it feels great." Asked whether he was relieved to have victory 2,000 behind him, Hole replied; "It is, but it isn't. It's very special. I just never focused on this one number. I just tried to do the best I could with every horse I rode. We'd get here eventually." Hole's late father, Michael, was a British-born jockey who came to the U.S. in 1961 and rode 2,042 winners mostly in New York and New England before his death in April 1976. Hole followed in the business working odd jobs as a Rockingham Park stablehand in the mid-1980s, then moved to the Maryland steeplechase farm of a family friend to learn professional riding. On Jan. 17, 1992, Hole earned his first victory on his third career mount at Rockingham. Hole picked up win No. 1,000 aboard Salt State at Suffolk Downs on Jan. 14. A multiple stakes winner, Hole, 43, had single-season career highs of 198 wins in 2001 and $1.63 million in purse earnings in 2000. He ranked seventh at Laurel Park's 2015 winter meet with 14 victories, and is among the top 10 riders at the current Pimlico meet.
