Fair Grounds: Amoss, Asmussen tie for training title; Napravnik easily wins riding title
By Marcus Hersh
A day after he came within a neck of winning the $1 million Louisiana Derby with Mylute, trainer Tom Amoss won four races on Sunday’s closing-day card at Fair Grounds to tie Steve Asmussen for the 2012-13 training title.
Amoss and Asmussen also tied for the Fair Grounds title during the 2000-01 season, when both trainers won 54 races. This time, they knotted at 42 after it looked like Asmussen would win the title outright when he came into closing day with a two-win lead. But Amoss won with four of the seven runners he sent out Sunday, earning a share of his first Fair Grounds crown since the 2006-07 season, when Asmussen was out on suspension. Other than that year, Asmussen has been leading trainer at Fair Grounds every season since the 2000-01 season.
The Fair Grounds riding title, on the other hand, had not been in doubt for months, with Rosie Napravnik easily leading the standings for the third straight year. Napravnik, who was awarded a key to the city of New Orleans late last year, won 125 races, 42 more than runner-up James Graham and her highest total yet at Fair Grounds.
Fair Grounds, as per policy of its parent company, Churchill Downs Inc., does not publicize business figures. Those figures are made available through the Louisiana State Racing Commission, which as of Monday hadn’t received final figures from Fair Grounds.
Congrats to both trainers.
What ever happen to the pending drug case for asmussen it Texas anyone hear anything?
didn't see any reporting of the big payout on black gold carryover; must have perked up Easter for about 140(?) Fair Grounds handicappers/bettors
Any idiot with alot of money to burn could win the training or owners title at any track!! How many horses did Asmissen drop 3 or 4 claiming levels in the last week of the meet to pad his stats? The training and owner titles are meaningless. Only Rosie deserves kudos as she is head and shoulders above anyone riding at that meet. I saw 2 jocks who were 4/206 and another 6/228 riding at that meet.
Equibase says Tom Amoss 42 wins, Steve Asmussen 41. What's going on?
The 2 trainers with the most drug violations finih in a tie !!!! LOL ! TVG Guest trainer Tom Amoss 6 bad tests in less then 2yrs no days fines ! Steve has a list a mile long !!! The key to the guys are ??? they have the same owner - lawyer Maggie Moss !!!
Congratulations, Rosie! Rosie Napravnik is a class act. She is an outstanding jockey and intelligent, she always gives it her all in a race. Her stature in this sport is growing by leaps and bounds, and rightly so. Brava, Rosie!
Rosie, one of the best riders in America and although underated, she is tops, she works hard and gets results on both coasts and mid America. Can't wait till Keeneland opens where she is scheduled to ride, then Churchill and on to Saratoga, she should give the top three Dom, JV & Cast. a run and she will do well against the "boys". Keep going Rosie, you just keep getting better.
what are the chances ? amoss had 3 positives in 2012 and wins 4 on the last day. just too hard to believe.
