    Default Baffert finally gets his 2,000th win

    Bob Baffert had been stuck on 1,999 for several days now and finally on "Zenyatta Appreciation Day" (Dec 5, 2010) at Hollywood Park Bob gets #2,000

    For some future Trivial Pursuit answer it came in the 3rd race with Joe Talamo up on "Free Pourin" in a Maiden Special Weight

    Congrats to Bob.

    The accomplishment of 2k wins is significant, but even that milestone only puts Bob 21st in wins among US trainers (living or dead).

    At the moment his thoroughbred record is: 9,352 starts 2,000 - 1,529 - 1,333 (win, place, show)

    1st place in TB wins remains (the still modestly active in So. Cal) Jack Van Berg @ 6,405 wins
