Billy Davis Jr. recorded his 3,000th career win on Sunday night as he directed Vintage Grand to a win in the fifth race at Northfield Park.
“The only disappointing thing about getting three thousand wins was that my family couldn’t celebrate it with me because they have to stay in Canada due to Covid-19,” Davis Jr. said in reaching the milestone.
He went on to say, “When I was sixty or seventy away, I started to think about it but it really came up quicker on me than I anticipated. I remember when I was one away from two thousand wins, it took me like three weeks to get it,” he added with a laugh.
Davis Jr. recalled his first career win, guiding Spartacus DJ to the victory back in 2007 at Fraser Downs in British Columbia. “He was trained by my Dad. My father had like fifty four hundred wins.
