Hronis Brothers Take Del Mar Owners' Titles

Del Mar logo

Kosta and Pete Hronis, who race under the nom de course of Hronis Racing, won both owners’ titles at the 2013 Del Mar meeting which closed its 37-day run Wednesday.

The brothers from Delano, CA, banked $625,050 in purses and had six trips to the winner’s circle during the seven-week stand.

They thus became only the second set of owners to take the money-won title without winning the TVG Pacific Classic in the past 11 years. Brothers Cecil and Gary Barber had turned the trick in 2008.

While the Hronis’s were alone on top in the money category, they tied with two other parties for number of wins with six. The others were Nick Alexander and Kaleem Shah. But, with nine second-place finishes, as opposed to a single second-place finish for the other two owners, the Hornis’s were winners in that category, too.
