Top training and owner honors went to Jorge Navarro, who captured an unprecedented sixth straight training title while setting a track record for victories for the third straight year. Navarro finished with 85 winners from 190 starters and became the first to double as leading conditioner and owner since J. Willard Thompson and Quiet Winter Farm in 2001. Navarro’s JN Racing recorded a meet-leading 22 winners.
Veteran Jose Ferrer, who has been riding in New Jersey since 1982, captured his first Monmouth Park riding title with 94 winners. Earlier this year, the 54-year-old Ferrer, who has ridden more than 4,300 winners, was honored with the George Woolf Memorial Award, one of the nation’s top honors for jockeys.
