Canadian trainer Don Reid has joined a select group of conditioners to reach 1,000 career wins.

The honor came on July 15, when the Ontario-bred Little Ms Texas broke her maiden in the first race of the day at Ajax Downs. Little Ms Texas, ridden by Brian Bell, lead all the way in the 250-yard maiden race to win by a neck. A daughter of Mr Jess Tex out of the Hail Corona mare Well Hail, Little Ms Texas is a homebred racing for Donald Ito.

Reid has since 1980 trained the winners of 1,001 races, including 48 stakes, from 4,352 starts. They have earned more than $4.1 million.
