Lone Star: Asmussen on count down to 1,000


Trainer Steve Asmussen moved a step closer to a notable Lone Star Park milestone on Friday night, when Intimidating Woman won the second race. It was the 982nd Lone Star win for Asmussen, according to stats from the track's media relations manager, Brian Pochman.

Asmussen has had 4,222 starters at Lone Star, and together they have earned $22 million. He can move a little closer to the 1,000 win mark at Lone Star in tonight's fourth race, with Killa. Asmussen, who has a division of horses at Lone Star, currently leads all trainers in wins in North America.
