Jimmy Bouncer, a 5-year-old gelding by Square Eddie, won the sixth race at Del Mar on November 18, giving jockey "Super Mario" Gutierrez his 990th career win and pushing him onto the milestone-win watch list.

With Del Mar racing four days a week through December 4, and with Gutierrez averaging three starts per race day, Gutierrez has a good chance to reach the 1,000-win milestone during the current meeting.
