Brian Carpenter 2000 wins
Members of the Maywood Park driving colony congratulate Brian Carpenter after he posted his 2000th career victory with Itsallaboutwinning on Friday night.
Driver Brian Carpenter recorded his 2,000th career victory on Friday, Nov. 5 at Maywood Park as he guided the aptly named Itsallaboutwinning to a neck decision in Maywood Park’s 10th race.

Sweeping into command just after the quarter mile mark, Carpenter and the five-year-old Dennis Luehrs-trained gelding then held off the late move of MM West as they hit the wire in 1:58.2 for the milestone victory.

The Indianapolis, Indiana-born horsemen is currently sixth in the standings at Maywood Park and is enjoying a fine season at Balmoral Park as well.

“My dad got me started working with the horses when I was a little kid,” said Carpenter. “I always wanted to become a driver right from the start so hitting a milestone like this feels pretty special.”
