TRAINER STEVE MANLEY SCORES HIS 1,000TH VICTORY
Steve Manley scored the 1,000th training victory of his career on Wednesday in the ninth race at Hawthorne Race Course with longshot No Bull Jess who was making his second start. Ridden by Chris Emigh, No Bull Jess paid $40.20, $13.60, and $8.60. Hope Steve had a few bucks on him.
