Top jockey Yutaka Take posted his 2,500th career victory on the Japan Racing Association circuit Sunday when he won a special-weight turf race atop Into the Groove in Race 8.

Take, who stretched the mark to 2,501 with another triumph in the 12th race at the 2,000-meter Kyoto Racecourse, is only the second jockey in history to accomplish the feat. He was competing in his 12,140th race.
