Kobiskie, Acosta finish atop standings at Timonium


Dane Kobiskie clinched his second straight leading trainer title at the Maryland State Fair at Timonium by sending out four more winners on Monday’s closing-day card.

Kobiskie wound up with 10 winners from 28 starters, earning the largest share of a $10,000 bonus that went to the top four trainers at the meeting.

J. D. Acosta rode two winners on Labor Day and 10 overall to earn his second riding title in the past three years at Timonium. Jenna Joubert nearly caught Acosta on closing day when she rode three winners to wind up with nine.

Live racing in Maryland returns to Laurel Park on Saturday for the start of the fall meeting, highlighted by the 25th Jim McKay Maryland Million on Oct. 2.
