"I've ridden a lot of winners for Wayne," said jockey E.T. Baird who rode the milestone winner. "Winning 1,000 at one track is a milestone that few trainers ever see. I want to congratulate him."

Catalano, who is second to the now-retired Richard Hazelton (1,181) in Arlington's all-time trainer standings, remains hospitalized with pneumonia. Longtime assistant Fernando Canteria accepted congratulations from members of Arlington's management team.

According to a news release provided by track officials, a sign commemorating the milestone was being signed by Arlington staff and will be delivered to Catalano at Saint Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates.
