Jimmy Marohn Jr. put on a driving clinic at Monticello Raceway on Thursday, April 25 when he reined five winners on the 10-dash card.

Marohn, the defending driving champion at the 'Mighty M,' started his day by winning both ends of the early double.

He scored with La Hollywood ($3.40) in 2:03.3 in the first race, and then came back to cop the second behind Tom Riddle ($5.20) in 1:57.4.

Marohn then won the fourth race with Bell Kat Kadab ($4.70) in 2:01.1.

A 1:59.1 triumph with Rustys Flying ($5.70) in 1:59.1 gave Marohn his fourth driving victory on the card, and he capped his afternoon when he won with Miss Marla ($5.70) in 2:01.3.

“I’m really pleased with the way things worked out today,” Marohn said. "When I studied the program I figured I had a good chance in winning three (races), but the dice were rolling my way this time.”

Three of Marohn's winners are from the powerful Danny Gill barn. Gill won top training honours at Monticello last year and is currently the meet’s leading trainer again this season.

Gill has undergone triple-bypass surgery at Westchester Medical in Valhalla, New York.
