As the late, great Don Meredith — the former NFL quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and the better broadcaster for “Monday Night Football” — used to say…

You can turn out the lights.

The party is over.

Actually, “Dandy Don” would try to sing it in his best Country-Western style.

Wasn’t much to listen to…but very accurate.

And, you can tune that little ditty up right now.

For the trainer’s race at the current Churchill Downs’ Spring/Summer meet?

Well, you can turn out the lights.

The party is over.

Steve Asmussen, another Texan and probably a fan of Meredith’s, has blown away the competition and blown out the candles on this cake. After Sunday’s races were all done, Asmussen had amassed 27 wins, 26 seconds and 21 thirds in 161 saddle jobs this meet.

His horses have won .17% of the time.

His horses have finished “in the money” .46% of the time.

And, most importantly, his horses have earned over $2.788 million — to top all trainers this meet, as well.

The second leading trainer is Eddie Kenneally, who is 11 wins farther back at 16 wins. Brad Cox has made 14 trips to the “circle,” with Mike Maker tallying 13 wins, and Tom Amoss 12.
