Jockey Mario Pino earned his 3,500th career win on Wednesday in the sixth race at Pimlico Race Course.

Pino, 34, who has been riding for 17 years, reached the milestone aboard favored Stormy Cloud for owner Phyllis Fitzgibbons. The Wilmington, Del., native is considered the winningest jockey in Maryland racing history.

Pino began riding in 1979 after Maryland began a year-round circuit.

Stormy Cloud is trained by Richard Delp, who also saddled Pino's 2,500th winner in 1990.
