Jockey Potts Wins 3,000th Race

Clinton Potts rode Forever Tango for his 3,000th win.

Clinton Potts rode two winners for trainer Todd Beattie Tuesday night, March 8, at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, and the second score was a milestone victory for the native of Sierra Madre, Calif.     The win aboard Beattie’s own Forever Tango in the $32,000 seventh race allowance feature was Potts’ 3,000th riding victory in a career that began in 1990 at Blue Ribbon Downs. 

Potts’ two tallies moved him into second behind Dana Whitney in the 2011 Penn National standings. He scored his 2,999th win with She Said She Said in the six-furlong third race. He finished second with another Beattie-trainee Banker Bailout in the sixth race before getting his historic tally with Forever Tango.

Forever Tango led all the way in the mile and 70 yard race to win in 1:45.89 while posting her third victory from 11 starts.
