Southwind Amazon posted his 21st win of the season at Northfield Park on Monday (Dec. 17) capturing the evening’s 13th race.

His win tally ranks Southwind Amazon as the winningest horse in North America so far in 2018.

Southwind Amazon’s 21 wins this year have come from 37 starts. He has also finished second and third each five times, an impressive feat for a horse generally assigned the outside against Open company on a half-mile track.

The eight-year-old gelding began Monday’s victorious journey from the outside and led his competition at every call through fractions of :26.1, :55.3, 1:23.1 and 1:52, besting his competition by two lengths.

Southwind Amazon (Camluck – Artoonist – Artsplace) is owned by Ameer Najor of Bloomfield, Michigan and is trained by Paul Holzman. Ronnie Wrenn Jr. was in the sulky for the winning drive.

Most of Southwind Amazon's wins have come at Northfield Park and in many of them he was assigned the dreaded 8-hole. He won there earlier this year in 1:49.3, which is particularly impressive since Northfield is a half mile track, and you can count all the sub-1:50 miles run at Northfield on the fingers of one hand. He's been racing since January and I don't think he's ever taken more than 2 consecutive weeks off. He's the Nirvana Seelster of Ohio!
