Man O' War, Kelso, Frankie Dettori, Dave Gall - September 28th

Jockey Dave Gall had his 7,000th career win, at Fairmount Park aboard A. J. Onray. He was the fourth rider to attain 7,000 wins.~1996

 

Forty years after Man O' War won the Lawrence Realization Stakes at Bemont Park by 100 lengths in the record time of 2:40 4/5, Kelso equaled his time in the same event. ~1960

 
Atlantic City Racecourse and The Meadowlands became the first U.S. tracks to engage in simulcasting. The previous year, Woodbine and Fort Erie in Canada had been the first to experiment with simulcasting. ~1983
 
Jockey Lanfranco Frankie Dettori won seven-of-seven races at Ascot, a single-day wins record in England. His win streak was estimated to have cost English bookmakers 30 million and to have caused the closing of as many as 40 bookmaking shops, which suffered heavy losses after paying off winning punters. ~1996
