Dunkelberger ties record

November 15, 2009


CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- With a win aboard Citigambler in Sunday's third race, jockey Travis Dunkelberger equaled the North American record for consecutive wins by a jockey with nine.

The record was established by Albert Adams in 1930 and equaled in 1993 by Anthony Black.

Dunkelberger's effort to hold the record outright fell short in Sunday's seventh race when Warm Springs Girl finished second as the odds-on favorite.

Dunkelberger's winning streak came in races at both Charles Town and Laurel, with his last defeat coming in Laurel's fifth race on Wednesday.
