Smith won the 4,000th race of his career last Friday (May 4th) at his "day job," Freehold Raceway. He then moved toward the next plateau, upsetting Saturday afternoon's (May 5th) $66,400 Lady Suffolk for 3-year-old trotting fillies with 21-1 longshot Special Miss.

The affable 56-year-old Smith, a native of Boston,has been a New York/New Jersey area standout seemingly forever. He has accumulated seven-figure purse seasons every year since 2000, with a career total of more than $35 million.

"I'm not a numbers guy, but I appreciate it" Smith said. Just keep grinding away.

Smith's obligatory sign of congratulations was presented by Fred Opper, the Raceway's long-time publicity department icon and crack statistician.
