Leparoux Reaches 300 Keeneland Wins

Jockey Julien Leparoux

Julien Leparoux, who has all but wrapped his ninth title as leading rider at Keeneland, recorded his 300th victory at the track on Wednesday. Leparoux won the first race on Fear the Kitten and the fifth race on High On Kitten. He reached the milestone when he rode Son of a General to win the sixth race. Members of the Keeneland jockey colony and Leparoux’s fiancé, Shea Mitchell, joined him in the winner’s circle after the race to commemorate the event.

Leparoux also won the 10th race on Thursday to record a four-win day. He has ridden three winners on three days during the meet.

A two-time Eclipse Award recipient, Leparoux is fifth on the list of Keeneland’s all-time winningest riders, behind Pat Day (918), Don Brumfield (716), Robby Albarado (444) and Shane Sellers (412). His 32 stakes wins here include the 2012 Fall Meet’s Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3) on Sum of the Parts, Bourbon (G3) on Balance the Books and Sycamore (G3) on Kindergarden Kid.

Day won a record 22 meet titles, followed by Brumfield (16) and Steve Brooks (10).

Through Thursday, Leparoux has 22 wins at Keeneland, 11 more than runner-up Corey Lanerie. He is named on eight horses today, four on Friday and eight on Saturday, which is closing day.

In 2012, Leparoux has 162 wins and ridden the earners of more than $11.2 million.
