Jockey Chantel Sutherland recorded the 1,100th win of her career when she guided Anonymous Source to victory for trainer Kathy Mongeon in the third race at Gulfstream Park Sunday.
“I'm very grateful to Kathy and all the trainers who are supporting me. I love Gulfstream. Everyone is amazing,” said Sutherland, while making her way to the jockey's room, stopping several times to accommodate fans' requests for selfies. “This is a special day to win 1,100 because it's Sunday. I went to church this morning. I was hoping, but I didn't ask for it. I just said, 'I want to have a safe, wonderful day.'”
The 45-year-old native of Windsor, Canada has been riding full time at Gulfstream's spring/summer meet where she currently has 16 winners.
“I love it here. It feels a lot like L.A. I feel like California is really my home, but not much anymore. I love Canada, but it's too cold,” Sutherland said. “I love Florida, and Gulfstream's amazing.”
