Oceanport, N.J. – Trainer Bruce Alexander enjoyed a banner day at Monmouth Park on Friday, tying the record for most wins in a single day after he captured four of the 11 races on the card. 

            It was the fourth time in track history that a trainer won four on a single card and the first time in 22 years.  On Sept. 8, 1975 trainer J. Willard Thompson set the bar with a four-bagger, followed by Robert Klesaris on July 10, 1987 and John Forbes on Aug. 28, 1989. 

            “You never expect to win four races in one day,” said Alexander, who lives in nearby Eatontown.  “Today was just one of those of days where everything worked out.” 

            Alexander, a 56-year-old native of Canandaigua, N.Y., saddled five horses at Monmouth on Friday.  The first of his victories came in race three with My Place Anytime ($3.60).  He then won the sixth with Wicked Tune ($21.20), the seventh with Image of Don ($7.80) and the finale with Crafty Concorde ($7).  All four horses are owned Patricia Generazio. 

            After tying for top conditioner at Monmouth’s Elite Summer Meet last year, Alexander went on to saddle more winners than any other trainer in 2010 at Monmouth Park.
