Jockey Travis Dunkelberger reached the 3,000-win plateau when he guided Casey Doon, his only mount on the card, to victory in the eighth race at Laurel Park Nov. 28. The 30-year-old became the 140th rider to reach the milestone, according to Equibase.
Travis Dunkelberger returned to Aqueduct March 7, nearly a month after he suffered cracked ribs in a frightening spill. Dunkelberger rode five horses, and won the day's finale on wire-to-wire winner Dancingintherain.
Longshot Zonk rallied from just off the pace to upset Saturday's $261,000 Delaware Oaks (gr. III) at odds of nearly 30-1 in the 1 1/16-mile race for 3-year-old fillies at Delaware Park. Earlier on the card, Broken Vow earned a one-length win in the $97,000 R.R.M. Carpenter Jr. Memorial Stakes and Amourette upset 21-10 favorite Aiglonne in the $154,500 Robert G. Dick Memorial Breeders' Cup Stakes.
Travis Dunkelberger, who has won seven races on a card twice in his riding career, captured five wins Thursday at Pimlico, including four of the final five races.
