Trainer Jamie Ness on a tremendous hot streak


Trainer Jamie Ness has been on a tremendous roll of late, winning with 22 of 28 starters between Saturday, May 5 and Wednesday’s fourth race at Delaware Park.

Ness’s winners have come at Delaware, Pimlico, Penn National, Presque Isle Downs, and with his final starter of the recently concluded Tampa Bay Downs meet, at which he was the runaway leading trainer. Ness sent out 79 winners from 168 starters at the Tampa meet. The second-leading trainer, Gerald Bennett, had 32 winners.

Ness has had two long recent winning streaks. He won with eight straight starters May 10-12 at Delaware, Pimlico, and Penn National. Ness then won with five straight starters between May 12-16 at Delaware, Penn National, and Presque Isle.

During a period from May 10-16 Ness won with 17 of 19 starters. His five-race winning streak was broken Wednesday when one of his runners finished third in the fifth race at Delaware. Ness had three more horses entered to run later on Wednesday.

Coming into Wednesday’s race, Ness was the leading trainer in the country with 166 wins. He trains primarily for Midwest Thoroughbreds Inc.
