Hollendorfer 3rd U. S. Trainer to 7,000 Wins

Hall of Fame Trainer Jerry HollendorferHall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer won the 7,000th race of his career when Kiss N Scat, who he co-owns with Steve Taub and George Todaro, won the first race at Golden Gate Fields Nov. 26.

Hollendorfer is now third on the all-time list of trainers by wins behind the late Dale Baird and Steve Asmussen.

Kiss N Scat, a 2-year-old Scat Daddy filly, easily captured an entry-level allowance race to kick off the card at the Northern California track. She won the one-mile race by 13 lengths under jockey Ricardo Gonzalez and paid $2.20 to win as the heavy favorite.

"I'm very grateful to be able to do something like this," Hollendorfer said by telephone from Del Mar. "I've had a lot of good people help me. I want to thank the horses, the owners, and the help I've had. All of my staff, including (my wife) Janet, have done such a good job. They're the people who do most of the work."
Among the current stars in the Hollendorfer barn is former Eclipse Champion Juvenile Colt Shared Belief and unbeaten Songbird who secured a championship of her own with a romp in last month's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1).
