Victor Kirby earned the 4,000th victory of his career Tuesday at Harrington, driving Spanish Dream to victory in the fifth race.

Kirby learned the business from his grandfather, Vinal Kirby, and was a point guard in college for Marymount University (Va.) approximately 25 years ago. He is a regular on the Delaware valley circuit, including regular trips to Harrah's Philadelphia and the Meadowlands. Kirby is well-traveled, recently competing at four different racetracks in four states over the past week.

Kirby quickly earned another win one race after getting his milestone victory, with a 1:54.1 win in the $17,500 Mares Open aboard Jo Ann Looney-King's Purrfect Bags ($4). Trained by Jim King Jr., the Roddy's Bags Again 5-year-old was a pacesetting winner over Miss Me Yet and Hostess Lisa.

Trainer Brian Malone won the 10th with Corona Again ($3.60, Tony Morgan) to give him a three-win lead in the race as the meet's leading trainer over Josh Green.

Montrell Teague and Morgan each had driving doubles.
