OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Trainer David Jacobson saddled three winners at Aqueduct Racetrack on Thursday to tie the single-year record for victories on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit with 159.

 

Jacobson, 59, won race 2 with Notmyfirstime ($6.80), race 3 with Moments Notiz ($4.30) and then took the ninth and final race with Force Multiplier ($14.20) to tie the record set in 2007 by Gary Contessa.

 

With four racing days left in 2013, Jacobson currently leads the Big A's inner-track meet standings with 18 wins. He had already clinched his second straight training title on the NYRA circuit, having topped last year's standings with 110 victories.

 

On Friday, Jacobson has Tiz Gianna entered in the seventh race along with Hailstone, an also-eligible. On Saturday he is entered in all but races 6 and 8.
