SEARS' FOURTH WIN IS ALLARD'S 3,000TH


SEARS' FOURTH WIN IS ALLARD'S 3,000TH
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Thursday, April 14, 2016-That Brian Sears won four races during a card doesn't exactly qualify as "man bites dog." When Sears' last victory of that Thursday night quartet was a milestone for the trainer, it sort of justifies this missive.

Rene Allard trained a trio of Yonkers Raceway winners from seven starters Thursday, including death-and tax-deadline-is-Monday Daylon Miracle ($2.30) in the $14,000, 11th race trot (1:55.4). That was the 3,000th victory of his career, making him-at 29youngest trainer ever to reach that milestone (lifetime purses approaching $29 million).

Allard, currently sitting third in local standings, had personal bests in wins (454 in 2012) and earnings (nearly $6.2 million in 2015).
