CHESTER, W.Va. (AP) _ Dale Baird became the first North American trainer to saddle 9,000 winners when Frazee's Folly took the eighth race Friday night at Mountaineer Race Track & Gaming Resort.

``It feels great,'' the 69-year-old Baird said.

Several of Baird's friends and family were in the crowd as Deshawn Parker guided Frazee's Folly to the finish line for the historic moment.

Jack Van Berg is No. 2 all-time among trainers with 6,334 wins.
