Bennett making it happen at his hometown track


OLDSMAR, Fla. – Gerald Bennett’s training career hit its peak in 1990, when the best horse he’s ever trained, Beau Genius, won the Grade 1 Philip H. Iselin Handicap at Monmouth Park on his way to $1.06 million in career earnings. Over a career spanning more than 40 years, Bennett has rarely had that kind of firepower in his barn, but that hasn’t stopped him from piling up the wins.
