On Monday afternoon, longtime Monticello Raceway horseman John De Simone, Jr. notched his 2,000th career win aboard Get The Look who scored in 1:59.3.

Get The Look is an 11-year-old mare by Cams Card Shark, who is also trained by De Simone, in the process she picked up her first win of the season for owner Dr. Joshua Tanis of Tallahassee, Florida.

De Simone has been a fixture in the Monticello barn area and driving colony for over 40 years and hails from a family with a long and rich tradition at Monticello Raceway. The blue collar journey man primarily drove close to home over the years, driving at Pocono Down and Yonkers in addition to Monticello.

The 60-year-old De Simone is currently in sixth place in the Monticello drivers’ colony with 54 wins.
