Memorial Day was extra memorable for trainer Danny Pish this year, as the Monday afternoon saw him win his 2,000th career Thoroughbred race.
The aptly-named U S Officer won his debut in a 2-year-old maiden special weight race at Lone Star Park to mark the milestone, drawing away by three lengths on the wire in a final time of :58.73 for five-eighths of a mile. The U S Ranger colt was ridden by David Cabrera.
Now 50, Pish got his first winner in 1995. He has been ranked in the country's top 100 trainers by wins every year since 2000, and has started a total of 11,832 Thoroughbreds, according to Equibase.
