Trainer Morey picks up win No. 1,000


Trainer Billy Morey saddled his 1,000th winner Thursday at Golden Gate Fields when Sports Edition ($5.40) won the seventh race, rallying from fifth for her 10th career victory.

The 36-year-old Morey took out his training license in 2001after working as an assistant for his father, Bill Morey Jr., for eight years. He has averaged 131 wins the past three years and has 128 this year.

Morey snapped Jerry Hollendorfer’s run of 32 straight Golden Gate Fields training championship in 2008.
