The month of December seems to be to harness racing driver Jimmy Devaux's liking, it was only 10 days ago that he won five races on the afternoon.

On Thursday afternoon December 27, Devaux did it again. The wins started in Race two where he scored with RCS Ready (2:04.1-$9.70) for trainer Wesley Miller. It is rare to see Devaux go off at odds of 30/1, as he pulled off a shocker with NY Whitesox in 1:58 and paid $63.50.

Jim came right back in the next race and visited the winners circle with Quality Closer in the Winner Over event, scoring an easy 6 length win in 1:54.4 for Monica Banca, Zack Lee won the 10th race for owner Gary Haas in 1:57 - $5.50. Drive Em Cowboy capped off the 5 bagger in race 11 to win in 1:57.2 and paid $13.20 for win.

Devaux just missed his 6th winner of the day but fell short finishing second in the last race.

The five wins added to DeVaux's yearly tally, giving him 211 wins at Monticello Raceway, placing him 4th in for leading dash winners and $796,076 in earnings, over $776,000 was wagered on the 12-race card.
