Harness racing driver Dave Palone broke Herve Filion's all-time North American career victory record of 15,180 with a win in the eighth race on Thursday afternoon (July 5) at The Meadows.

The 15,181st victory of Palone's career came behind Herculotte Hanover, a 2-year-old trotting filly making her lifetime debut for a return of $6.40 on a $2 wager. The daughter of Andover Hall-Her Culese scored in a time of 2:00.1 for owners Up Front Racing and Joe Sbrocco. Jim Arledge is the trainer.

Earlier in the day, in the third race, Palone equaled Filion's record with Well Al B, a 5-year-old pacing gelding owned by Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Ron Burke is the trainer for Well Al B, who ran his winning streak to three, with the 1:52.2 score.

"I was just so nervous," said Palone. "It took me 24 drives to get my first win. It was a big thrill for me to get the monkey off my back, like it was here today.

"All these people, I wish I could just thank every one of them for coming out today. I just wanted to get it done so bad. It's so appreciated.

"Every single trainer over there on the backside has helped me to this point and I don't want to forget any of those wins. They all count the same. This was obviously a big win, but they all played a part."
