Simington reaches 2,000 wins


BOSSIER CITY, LA. - Don Simington picked up career win number 2,000 in Sunday's ninth race at Harrah's Louisiana Downs. It was Simington's fourth win of the weekend and came on a 2-year-old first time starter named Coalhouse ($25.60) who is trained by Jerry Hardin.

Coalhouse was also entered in Sunday's featured Pioneer stakes but his connections opted instead for a debut against fellow maidens under special weight conditions.
