Star jockey Yutaka Take picked up two wins Saturday to set a single-season Japan Racing Association record with 212 wins, breaking the mark he produced last year.

Take eclipsed the mark when he steered 4-year-old horse Firenze to victory at Hanshin Racecourse, two races after posting his 211th win of the year in the day’s seventh race.

Take, who made his jockey debut in 1987, has already secured the 15th leading jockey title of his career with the most wins this year.
