D’Amato Saddles First Winner As Trainer

Philip D’Amato won his first race as a trainer in his own right when first-time starter Love That Action rallied from well off the pace to win Thursday’s eighth race by a neck under Joe Talamo at odds of 18-1. It was the third win on the day for Talamo.

 

The 34-year-old D’Amato’s primary claim to fame to date is as assistant to trainer Mike Mitchell. “I’ve been with him going on seven years,” D’Amato said by phone from Hollywood Park. “This was my fourth starter on my own and my first win.”

 

A native of San Pedro, D’Amato graduated from Rancho Palos Verdes High School before matriculating to USC. After graduating, he attended the Arizona Race Track School program.

 

Despite the fact that double-digit longshots swept the last four races in Thursday’s Pick 6 races, there was one winning ticket worth $65,896.40.

 

“I wish it was mine,” D’Amato said, “but it wasn’t.”
