Trainer Jeff Runco Wins 3,000th Race

eff Runco became the 24th trainer in North American history to notch 3,000 wins in a career when Sweet Halucination won the fifth race at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races on April 23 by 8 1/2 lengths.

“It’s definitely exciting, but it’s been a lot of work over the years,” said the 51 year-old Runco.  “We’ve had so many good people behind the scenes and great owners that have made it all possible.”

Following a career as a jockey, Runco decided to turn his attention to training in the mid 1980’s and his horses banked almost $30 million in earnings since then, including a Charles Town record of over $2.8 million in 2010. Runco-trained horses have won 100 or more races in 19 of the last 20 years.
