Milestone Victory for Jockey Centeno

Jockey Daniel Centeno notched his 2,000th career victory July 27 when Forest Rim won the seventh race at Parx Racing, a 1-mile-and-70-yards allowance test.

The winner is a 4-year-old gelding who races for his Pennsylvania breeder, George Strawbridge and is trained by Jonathan Sheppard.

Centeno, a native of Venezuela whose father was a jockey, has earned more than $36.6 million in 11,256 mounts since getting his first win in his native country in 1990.
