Champion trainer Paul Jones has reached the milestone of $70 million in earnings.

Jones has now trained the earners of $70,002,780.
Already this year, the trainer has earnings of $937,622, putting him second on this year’s the list by earnings.
Jones is already the sport’s all-time leading trainer by money earned, and just continues to extend his lead. The next closest is Blane Schvaneveldt, whose trainees earned more than $55.3 million.
