Lone Star Park: Trainer Evans gets 1,000th win


Trainer Justin Evans won the 1,000th Thoroughbred race of his career Sunday at Lone Star Park near Dallas when Celestic Night ($14.20) was up for a neck win in the fifth race. The horse was one of two winners Evans had Sunday, his other coming in the first race at Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico.

Evans saddled his first career winner July 27, 1999. He has had 4,701 Thoroughbred starters, and those horses have earned $9,578,773.

Evans is the leading trainer at Lone Star with 25 wins from 91 starters through Sunday. Earlier this year, he won the Thoroughbred training title at Sunland Park in New Mexico.
