John Desimone wins 4 at Monticello Raceway

June 6, 2019

The home grown 60-year-old John Desimone Jr. has been a fixture at Monticello Raceway for over 4 decades.  On Wednesday afternoon – June 5, Johnny D, made the most of the absence of 3 of the top drivers at Monticello Raceway as he won 4 races on the day and drove the winner of the fastest mile of the year at Monticello Raceway. 

The fastest mile of the year came by virtue of Kenrick N, the classy out of town invader started from the 2 hole and ripped off fractions of 27.3, 56.3, 1:25.1 and opened 10 lengths on the pack to trip the timer in 1:53.3.  The 7-year-old son of Bettors Delight is trained by Austin Gilbert and earned his second win of the season in soft company. 

Desimone’s other winners on the afternoon were aboard Adorable Ben 1:59.4 – $19.80, Superiorcourt 1:58.2 – $13.20, and Elias Joy 2:01 – $4.20.
