Dexter winning everywhere this weekend

21 posts in this topic

He goes to the Meadows in Pennsylvania and wins a couple of divisions of PASS 3yo Filly trotters heats

 

Then leaves there and goes to Meadowlands and wins 1 there, then jumps across state lines to Yonkers in NY and wins three there All in about a 10 hour period.

then this morning (Sunday here) goes to Harrah's Philadelphia and drivers a couple there and hops on a plane to Ontario Canada and wins a $188,000 Confederation Cup at Flamboro Downs.

 

So He won 7 races and probably 10,000 in winning drivers fees.

I would say he would be nuts to come home because he is showing the world what a great driver he is.  He's gotten much more aggressive in his drives than when he 1st started here. 

 

He's doing us proud.

I see on the latest US driver rankings he's at #18 on number of race wins in 2019, but at #9 on stakemoney won in 2019, which when you're paid on percentage is the one that counts!

He's not doing a bad job to crack the top 10 drivers in the US after only about 8 months on the ground!

Race 10.

 

Dexter must have a daughter right?...  She was in his arms after the race when they interview him and Kevin Ryder

Yes.  He was also holding his daughter in the photo after Bettor Joy won her big race at Addington last year which I have hanging on my wall at home.    Do you know Tim how much tax drivers would have to pay on their earnings. ?  I’m guessing they have state and federal taxes.

Yeah, he will have to pay state and federal. 37 percent over a million. 35 percent 500,000 to 1 mil. All the write offs and that and he probably would pay in the mid 20's. Just a guess.

He's climbed his way up the ladder to #7 on the 2019 US Money winning list now, and is within reach of a top 5 spot.

Quite amazing results for his first full season over there. Especially considering he started off with only a handful of contacts and no major stables behind him!

Hi Tim.  What month does the season start in the US?.   I’m guessing it is starting to ramp up with the big stakes races to start soon?

Yep, Now it's getting into the stakes races and July many more with the Hambletonian in August and there are tons of races on the Grand Circuit where they go all over the place.

 

Most of the top horses will run in those then take the last few months of the year off and not reappear until April or May, so they get plenty of time off. QUite a few horses will race year round pretty much but those horses are often not the good ones like the 2 or 3 year olds.

Yeah Captain Crunch just won in 1:47.2.  Dexter had to pull back and angle out and it cost him.  He gets a run up the rail he wins

He probably won about 25k in driving commissions so not a bad day at the office.    Bettor Joy has been racing since October in this campaign so I would say she needs a good rest now.

Dexter's march up the ladder continues after another great weekend of results!

I think he was on just over $3 million before the weekend so maybe this includes Canadian earnings as well??
