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 29—youngest trainer ever to reach that milestone.

Allard, who acquired his trainer’s license at the age of 17, currently sits third in the standings at Yonkers Raceway. The Quebec native had personal bests in wins (454 in 2012) and earnings (more than $6.2 million in 2015). One of his most impressive stats is his UTR – a number that has never been under .300 over the course of a season.
