Even though jockey Kent Desormeaux dominated the seventh running of the Maryland Million yesterday with three winners, Julie Krone still leads in overall total of Million wins.

She won one race (The Ladies on Deputation) yesterday, but increased her overall record to eight victories. Desormeaux has six overall Million wins.

But Fenwick bounced up quickly and returned to ride Score Thirty Eight to victory two races later. Quiet Island broke both hind legs and had to be destroyed.
