    July 7, 2018

    Suffolk Downs (Massachusetts):
    • The third day of the boutique meet had as much action as any track short of Illinois or New York.
    • Race 13 (the first race run due to it being a non-betting race): The day began with a non-betting race, an exhibition in a sense. Dr. Blarney (Tammi Piermarini/Karl Grusmark) is now 20 14-0-3 including a perfect 8 8-0-0 at the track. He is a Mass-bred. and is quite the local story.
    • Race 12: A staggering payout of $133.40 for the win, $1,823.20 for the exacta, $4,005.40 for the tri and a $2 Pick 4 in excess of $6,100. Floria Tosca (Carlos Camillo/Rafael Rohena) was sent off with the longest set of odds at 65-to-1, and seventh in the stretch, was the victor but only after a tragic episode. Anatevka, sent off at 63-to-1, stumbled while leading in the stretch in an attempt to go gate-to-wire, and was euthanized moments later. The finale also had a lengthy objection-inquiry involving third place and fourth place which resulted in a change of those two spots. The winning trainer began the year 0-for-39 before a win at Finger Lakes two days ago. The winning jockey, not a bug according to Equibase, won for the first time in North America.
    • Races 7 and 8: The duo of Erik Barbaran/Jay Bernardini won consecutive races. The pair are among the best at Mountaineer in West Virginia. Bernardini won the last full meet at Suffolk Downs in 2014.
    • Race 5: Khan of Khans (Luis Perez/Dylan Clarke), a 12-year-old out for the 108th time, was the victor. He won for the 30th time including four of the last five.
    • Race 3: Among the most unlikely winners of the day was South Carolina, an 0-for-23 maiden filly going against the boys. She moved like Seattle Slew in the stretch and finally broke her maiden at 35-to-1. The win paid $72.40. The exacta was over $500. The tri was in excess of $3,100.
    Belmont (New York):
    • The track handled over $24,000,000 which is an increase of 10% from 2017. A beautiful day of weather met with a spectacular card. New York did not disappoint. Races 6 through 10 were $300,000+ purses.
    • Race 11: The $2 Pick 6 paid over $74,000, a significant payout for the second consecutive day. Joel Rosario completed the theory that if he wins early, he won the second race, he will repeat at some point.
    • Race 10: In one of the best races of the day, Catholic Boy (Javier Castellano/Jonathan Thomas) fought back in a terrific stretch battle with Analyze It and won the $1.2 million purse in the Grade I Belmont Derby.
    • Race 9: Diversify (Irad Ortiz, Jr./Richard Violette) improved to 8 6-2-0 at Belmont in winning the Grade II Suburban in a romp of more than six lengths. Diversify, who received a revised Beyer of 110 for this performance, is now 14 9-2-0 and has earned over $1,000,000. The $2 tri paid over $3,800 with 34-to-1 and 41-to-1 rounding out the exotic. Hoppertunity (Flavien Prat/Bob Baffert) and Tapwrit (Jose Ortiz/Todd Pletcher), two that figured to many, finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
    • Race 8: Athena (Ryan Moore/Aidan O'Brien), an Irish-bred, won the $1,000,000 Belmont Oaks. The 3-year-old filly won for the second time in 10 starts. What made her improbable win, at 10-to-1, even more pronounced was that she ran June 21 in Great Britain and July 1 in Ireland. Three races in three lands within 16 days is a heavy workload. The all-European bred trifecta paid over $4,800. French breds finished 2nd and 3rd. Six of the ten contestants were bred in Europe
    • Race 7: Limousine Liberal (Jose Ortiz/Ben Colebrook) won the Grade II $350,000 Belmont Sprint Championship, a "Win and You're In" Breeders' Cup race.
    • Race 6: Firenze Fire (Irad Ortiz, Jr./Jason Servis) won the Grade III Dwyer Stakes.
    • Race 5: Three across the wire in a great finish. Winning rider Junior Alvarado also won the fourth race and led into the stretch in the third race. Trainer Leana Willaford, who replaced the suspended Bill Mott, won for the first time since 2000. She is Mott's assistant and will be the trainer of record during his 7-day suspension.
    • Race 1: Meade (Jose Ortiz/Todd Pletcher) won in a race of 2-year-olds, seven of eight who were out for the first time.
    • Joel Rosario is 22 6-4-5 (27%/68%) in July. Very good numbers.
    • Luis Saez failed to hit the board in five starts and has won just once in his last 23 rides.
    • John Velazquez was winless on eight mounts but did bring two prices into second place with an 11-to-1 and 34-to-1 in consecutive grades stakes races. He has lost his last 15 starts.
    • The pairing of Javier Castellano and Todd Pletcher seems to be more infrequent as the days progress. Castellano was 9 1-1-0 yesterday and while he won an important race the numbers are unimpressive for a top rider.
    Monmouth (New Jersey):
    • Albin Jimenez won four times in seven starts.
    Parx (Pennsylvania):
    • Race 8: Vision Perfect (Frankie Pennington/Jason Servis) won the Grade III $200,000 Parx Dash. Chalk up another win this year for Servis.
    • Race 4: The tri paid over $1,200.
    • Race 3: The tri paid close to $2,000.
    Delaware Park (Delaware):
    • Race 7: The $2 Pick 5 paid over $29,000.
    • Race 8: Chris DeCarlo doesn't ride often anymore -- he has 12 starts since June 8 but he won the $200,000 Grade III today. The last time DeCarlo won a grades stakes race was in November but that is due in part to his infrequent riding schedule. Mario Pino finished second on a bomb. Tricky Escape (tr. Lynn Ashby) topped a $1 exacta of $70.90.
    • Race 10: Red Ruby (Paco Lopez/Kellyn Gorder) performed even better than expected in a 13-length shellacking in the $300,000 Delaware Oaks. The 3-year-old filly is now 6 4-1-0 and will likely run in a Breeders' Cup race.
    Laurel (Maryland):
    • Sheldon Russell won three times in eight starts.
    • Weston Hamilton was 0-for-10 and has now lost his last 65 starts. He was among the leading candidates for Apprentice of the Year at one point.
    • Race 8: Jeremy Rose found the winner's circle with Whereshetoldmetogo, the same colt in which he won his most recent race which was back in mid-June. Rose has just five wins in 2018.
    • Race 10: Miz Mayhem (Edgard Zayas/Edward Plesa), sent off at 1-to-2, won for the fifth straight time with the prior four at Gulfstream (Florida).
    Gulfstream (Florida):
    • Race 1: A $59.80 winner. The tri was over $1,800.
    • Race 5: The $2 Pick 5 paid an astronomical $225,905.20.
    • Race 6: Luca Panici was DQ'd from a win in the $100,000 race for Miguel Vasquez who won three times. Some of these decisions are debatable and some are outright nonsense. Panici won the 10th race.
    • Race 12: The $.20 Pick 6 paid over $42,000. Two horses were singled entering the finale and one of them finished second at 11-to-1. The $2 Pick 5 returned over $38,000. The $2 Pick 4 paid over $24,000.
    Arlington (Illinois):
    • The track had all turf racing including five purses of $100,000 from race 5 through 9.
    • Race 3: The $.50 tri was over $1,000.
    • Race 4: The $2 double was $1,094.80. $1,000+ doubles never get old.
    • Race 5: Real Story (Joe Bravo/Ignacio Correas IV) won at 7-to-1 odds the Grade III American Derby. The $.50 Pick 4 paid over $8,000. The $.50 Pick 5 paid over $29,000 which made a $2 bet over $119,000+
    [​IMG]
    • Race 6: Daddy's Lil Darling (Brian Hernandez, Jr./Kenneth McPeek) won as the favorite in the 12-horse Grade III Modesty Handicap.
    • Race 7: Colonia (Joe Bravo/Graham Motion) won the Hatoof Stakes in her U.S. debut. The French-bred raced fives prior times, all in France.
    • Race 8: Catcho En Die (Jose Valdivia, Jr./Naipaul Chatterpaul), an Argentinian-bred, won for the second time in the U.S. when winning the 87th running of the Grade III Stars and Stripes. The horse was 3-for-3 in Argentinian before coming to America where he is 2-for-6. Valdivia, Jr. is having another potent meet at Arlington.
    • Race 9: Divisidoro (Jevian Toledo/Kelly Rubley) won the Arlington Handicap. The victory was probably the biggest wins for the jockey and trainer who are both based in Maryland. The trainer, who recently was put in charge of the 6 year-old experienced horse, is a former school teacher and is in the early stages of training. Divisidoro has earned over $1.2 million lifetime.
    • Joe Bravo was one of the stars of the day. He won three times in seven starts including two stakes races. In his last 31 starts, he is 10-5-6 (32%/68%). Joe Bravo: Have Whip, Will Travel!
    • Corey Lanerie rode four times, his first mounts since his wife passed away two weeks ago.
    Los Alamitos (California):
    • Asa Espinosa won three times in five starts. He maintains a bug with 34 lifetime wins.
    • Race 8: Marley's Freedom (Drayden Van Dyke/Bob Baffert) won the Grade II Great Lady M Stakes at 1-to-5 in a field of five.
    • Race 9: My Ebony Star topped a $1 trifecta that returned over $1,000 with 13-to-1 and 90-to-1 finishing out the positions. Kellie McDaid, the winning rider, is approaching the 40-win total which would change her bug status from seven to five. The $2 Pick 6 paid over $14,000.
    Woodbine (Canada):
    • Eurico da Silva won four times including three mounts as the favorite. He is second at the meet in wins, 15 away from the lad and 17 head of third place; however, percentages between Rafael Hernandez and Da Silva are almost similar.
    Jockey Mike Smith:
    • A ceremony was held in his home state of New Mexico and thus was not riding.
    Trainer Jason Servis:
    • Was 7 2-1-2 today across four tracks. He is now 17 10-1-3 in July. Improbable numbers except they are real. Servis has the following numbers at the current NY/NJ meets:
    Belmont 35 17-0-5 (49%/63%)
    Monmouth 35 19-4-5 (54%/80%)
    -------------------------------------------
    Totals: 70 36-4-10 (51%/71%)

    July 8

    Suffolk Downs (Massachusetts):
    • The six-day meet has two more scheduled races, both in early August. This could be the final year of racing at the track which is more than 80 years old.
    • Race 6: The $2 tri paid over $4,000.
    • Race 10: The $2 tri paid over $9,500. Races 6 and 10 both had "all" in 4th place superfecta payouts. I can't recall the last time I have seen that on the same card.
    • Luis Perez won three times including more than 6 lengths in the exhibition non-betting pre-opener, race 13 in the program. He rides regularly at Finger Lakes (New York).
    • The winningest rider at the meet is Erik Barbaran with five victories. He has the number one call for trainer Jay Bernardini.
    • I have mentioned Jay Bernardini who is a good trainer at this level. He leads the meet with five wins after two yesterday and one today.
    • Trainers have been shipping from such places as Belmont and Finger Lakes. James Bond is a perfect 3 3-0-0. Bond won the 1999 Mass Handicap with one of my favorite horses: Behrens.

    Belmont (New York):
    • Race 4: For the second straight day, the combo of Junior Alvarado and Laura Willaford was victorious. Willaford is subbing for suspended boss Bill Mott. Her record this year is 8 2-2-1. Prior to this week, she last had a horse in her name in 2002.
    • Race 9: A Philly filly stunned the masses at 47-to-1 in the Grade III $150,000 Victory Ride for 3-year-old fillies. The odds were the second highest in the race of nine. Dixie Serenade (Mychal Sanchez/Ed Coletti, Jr.) pulled the shocking result with a rally along the rail in a fantastic ride by the jockey. This was the 11th race of the filly's career and the first time she has been out of Pennsylvania (eight races in Philly). She is now 11 4-4-1 and was in her first graded stakes race. Classy Act (Brian Hernandez, Jr./Bret Calhoun), a Kentucky/Louisiana runner. came in second place. Hernandez, Jr, who is a consistently fine rider mostly based in Kentucky, rode in four states the last five days and nights (Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky and New York). The win paid $97.50. The $2 exacta returned $667. The $.50 tri was over $1,100. The $1 Pick 3 was over $1,100. The $.10 super returned over $1,300.

    • Race 10: The $.50 Pick 5 paid over $96,000. The $.50 Pick 4 paid over $8,000. The stars were aligned in the finale. Javier Castellano rode a rare time for his brother Abel, who recently turned from a jockey to a trainer, and won at nearly 4-to-1.
    • John Velazquez has now lost his last 19 starts.
    • Irad Ortiz, Jr. was 9 2-1-4. In one win, he teamed with his brother Jose, sent off at the longest price on the board at 27-to-1, for a $1 exacta worth $73. How often does Jose Ortiz get sent off with the longest odds.
    • Jose Ortiz won the opener for the second straight day. However, except for the win and the race mentioned above, he did not hit the board in any other race. He was 8 1-1-0.
    Monmouth (New Jersey):
    • Jose Ferrer, at the age of 54, set a personal high with six wins and was one victory off the track record of seven set by Paco Lopez in May 2014. Ferrer could be the leading candidate for Jockey of the Week with a 26 12-3-5 mark. He was 10 6-0-3 today. Trainer Jorge Navarro won five times which tied his record for most wins by any trainer at Monmouth. The duo was 4 3-0-1 as a team. Navarro was 6 5-0-1 today and is 14 9-1-3 in July. Both jockey and trainer lead their respective categories with wins at the meet, Ferrer by 6 and Navarro by 16.
    Laurel (Maryland):
    • Race 7: Weston Hamilton, who maintains his apprentice with a 5-pound bug, ended his skid at 70. He won for the first time since June 17.
    • Kevin Gomez, once cold then torrid, is winless in 21 starts this month.
    Gulfstream (Florida):
    • Tyler Gaffalione won three times including the finale where the runner up lodged what seemed like a pointless objection. Gaffalione was 5 3-1-1.
    Emerald Downs (Washington):
    • Rocco Bowen won five times in eight starts (8 5-1-2). He puts up strong numbers at the track. In his last 20 starts, he is 9-2-6.
    Woodbine (Ontario):
    • Race 8: The streak has ended. Pink Lloyd (Eurico Da Silva/Robert Tiller), bet to his morning line of 1-to-9, faded in the stretch and finished third which halted his winning streak at 11. His record fell to 17 14-1-1, all at Woodbine. Kingsport (Patrick Husbands/Sid Attard), the second longest price on the board, won the $100,000 purse and paid $39. There was no place wagering. The $1 Pick 3 paid over $2,800.

    • Word that The Green Monkey passed away brings up the obvious reference that nothing in life is a guarantee. Nonetheless, a beautiful horse but goes down in the books as a massive failure with what was intended.


    The Green Monkey (Forestry), the most expensive horse ever sold at auction, was euthanized in May due to laminitis.

    The story was first reported by Paulick Report. The horse had been residing at Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds in Ocala, Fla.

    The Green Monkey was far better known for what he accomplished in the auction ring than what he did on the racetrack. He went into the ring at the 2006 Fasig-Tipton Calder Select 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale, where he worked an eighth of a mile in 9 4/5 seconds. That was among the reasons a bidding war between Coolmore and Darley took place with both entities determined to acquire the then 2-year-old. Eventually, Darley folded and Coolmore purchased the colt for $16 million.

    » The Green Monkey, the $16M Horse, Euthanized at 14
    • The Jockey's Guild emphasized stakes wins over volume in selecting Irad Ortiz, Jr. as the most recent winner of Jockey of the Week. Jose Ferrer, who I thought could have been the winner though not a lock, garnered some attention.

    With twice as many stakes wins as any other jockey last week and leading with over $1 million in earnings, Irad Ortiz, Jr. was voted Jockeys’ Guild Foundation Detox Jockey of the Week for July 2 – 8, 2018. The award is voted on by a panel of experts for riding accomplishments by members of the Jockeys’ Guild, the organization which represents more than 950 riders in North America. Jockey of the Week is sponsored by FoundationDetox.com, America’s #1 Equine Toxin Remover.

    The panel also expressed support for Jose Ferrer on the ballot, who won six races in a single card at Monmouth Park last week. With 12 wins, he was the leading jockey by number of wins for the week. Ferrer also landed in the top 25 North American jockeys by earnings despite having no stakes wins, with $188,816 in 26 starts, with a 77% in the money rate and a win rate of 46%.​

    That sound potentially ominous for his racing career. The breeding stage should not be jeopardized. Time will tell. It appeared he was on a Haskell/Travers, Breeders' Cup, Pegasus schedule and then onto retirement.

    Swollen ankle sidelines Justify | Daily Racing Form

    Triple Crown winner Justify has been taken out of training owing to filling in his left front ankle, according to a press release put out on behalf of co-owner WinStar Farm.

    “Justify had some filling in his left front ankle a week ago, which subsided in a couple days,” trainer Bob Baffert said in the release. “I trained him last week and the filling came back. We want to get him checked out.”

    Because of this development, Justify’s racing future is uncertain.

    Belmont (New York):
    • Race 3: Joel Rosario won. Putting my unique theory in place for this rider, he will win again if he finds the winner's circle in the first three races. And he did: with victories in the final two races on the card. Rosario rode four times.
    • Race 6: Manny Franco won for the third time.
    • Race 7: The combo of Junior Alvarado-Leana Willaford won for a third straight race day. They are three-for-five as a team. She is replacing Hall-of-Fame trainer Bill Mott who is serving a 7-day suspension.
    Finger Lakers (New York):
    • Our Caravan (Elias Peltroche/Michael Ferraro) won for the sixth straight time and for the 14th time in 38 lifetime starts.
    Delaware Park (Delaware):
    • Carol Cedeno, the leading rider at the meet, set a track record with seven victories. She was scheduled to ride the card, all 10 races, though was scratched from the ninth. Cedeno began the day with a natural hat trick plus one and eventually won races 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 10 with the finale on board an Arabian (full field, the norm in Delaware).




    Six riders have won six races on a single Delaware Park card. They are: Joseph Rocco, Jr., in 2011; Michael McCarthy, who accomplished the feat twice – once in 1997 and again in 1998; Jimmy Edwards, in 1984; Greg McCarron, in 1974; George Cusimano, in 1968; and Eldon Nelson in 1958.
    Mountaineer (West Virginia):
    • Race 9: The $2 Pick 5 paid over $25,000. Some decent payouts in many races under the lights.
    • Race 5: A $41.40 winner.
    • Race 3: A $47.80 winner. In the field of five, there was no show betting.
    • Race 2: A $52.60 winner.
    Indiana Grand (Indiana):
    • Race 9: The field had horses bred in nine different states. That is a large total. Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan and Missouri. Very few horses are bred in Missouri, just seven in 2016.

    Good!

    Luca Panici got DQ'd and it was a head-scratcher at the time which burned as the afternoon progressed. As noted in the summary above, the reverse call was questionable at best and that is being even-tempered.

    The controversy surrounding the disqualification of Midnight Soiree from first to second in Saturday’s $100,000 Martha Washington Stakes will continue indefinitely. According to trainer Lisa Lewis, the owners of Midnight Soiree will appeal the stewards’ decision to place their horse second behind Camila Princess for alleged interference through the stretch run of the one-mile turf event for 3-year-old fillies.

    July 12, 2018

    Belmont (New York):
    • The meet is winding down with Sunday's closing day. Saratoga runs July 20 - September 3. Belmont reopens September 7 - October 28. Then onto Aqueduct for a November 2nd opener.
    • Races 1 and 2: Jose Lezcano brought home the early double, winning on dirt and then turf.
    • Race 4: Jason Servis trained a winner on the fifth straight card. He is 40 19-1-6 (48%/65%) at the meet, wonderful numbers but to have that vast a difference between 1st and 2nd is unusual to say the least.
    • Race 9: Trainer Christophe Clement finished second which ended his four-race win streak covering the last two cards. He has won 8 of 18 in July at this meet.
    • Irad Ortiz, Jr. won three times. He has a 10-win lead over his brother Jose for most victories at the meet with 59.
    • Joel Rosario won early but didn't repeat with five starters. His record the last two days is 10 4-2-1
    • John Velazquez has now lost on board his last 22 mounts.
    • Javier Castellano is in the midst of a four-day suspension. He returns Saturday.
    • David Cohen's riding license was not approved by New York. He has an ongoing financial/personal concern according to David Grening on the DRF.
    Delaware Park (Delaware):
    • With Laurel (Maryland) dark, Weston Hamilton rode twice here and finished second both times. However, he has won just once in his last 77 starts.
    • Race 8: Kelly Rubley was the winning trainer. This month, she has had seven starters and three winners spanning three tracks for a total of 7 3-3-0. Small numbers but positive results.
    Charles Town (West Virginia):
    • Race 8: The $1 Pick 5 paid in excess of $9,400 when a 26-to-1 won the finale.
    Gulfstream (Florida):
    • Edgard Zayas rode four winners including two for Steve Klesaris.
    • Race 3: Tyler Gaffalione, who won for trainer Carlo Vaccarezza, leads the early part of the meet with nine wins.
    • Race 8: Emisael Jaramillo won on his only ride of the day. He is 30% at the meet with seven wins.
    Arlington (Illinois):
    • Races 5 and 6: The combo of Julio Felix and Ingrid Mason won consecutive races. In race 5, it was an even money favorite. In race 6, it was the second longest shot on the board at 29-to-1. Mason is 3-1-2 with her last eight starters.
    • Race 8: The $.20 Pick 6 paid over $19,000.
    Canterbury (Minnesota):
    • Canceled due to heavy rains.

    Monmouth Generates $2.2m in Sports Betting Revenue in First 17 Days

    » Monmouth Generates $2.2m in Sports Betting Revenue in First 17 Days

    Although the handle figure for each individual property was not included in the state’s report, the Asbury Park Press reported Monmouth’s total sports betting handle was $8,176,212.

    It is unclear, however, exactly how the money bet on sports at Monmouth will translate to purse enhancements for Thoroughbred horsemen.

    When TDN inquired as to what the splits might be or if a sports betting revenue-sharing agreement for purses is formally in place, Tom Lucci, the track’s media relations director, replied “Monmouth Park officials will not be making any statement.”

    The New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association’s advisor and attorney is Dennis Drazin, who helped to lead the state’s long-shot United States Supreme Court battle to have the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) declared unconstitutional. Drazin is also the chairman and chief executive of Darby Development LLC, which operates Monmouth Park

    “We are extremely pleased with our numbers,” Drazin told the Asbury Park Press Thursday. “We think they show there is a huge appetite for sports betting. To be generating these numbers early, and it’s not even football season yet, speaks enormously of the potential for when football season comes around. So we’re thrilled by the early numbers.”

    The Asbury Park Press also speculated that the live racing product could be a beneficiary of crossover horse betting handle now that the track is open daily for sports betting. On nine weekend/holiday racing dates between June 14 and July 12, the Asbury publication reported that Monmouth’s on-track handle was up 3.4% over the same dates in 2017.​

    July 13, 2018

    Belmont (New York):

    • Junior Alvarado may have been the star of the day going 5 2-0-2. Both his third place finishers rallied and at 18-to-1 and 9-to-1. The highlight was an $18 winner.
    • Manny Franco also won twice though with seven mounts.
    • Race 4: Joe Bravo did a nice job in his typical heady style with a victory. He finished third with his other starter. Joe Bravo: Have Whip, Will Travel! Onto Monmouth tomorrow.
    • Race 5: The $2 Pick 5 paid over $21,000. The $2 Pick 4 paid over $8,400.
    • John Velazquez has now lost with his last 26 mounts.
    • Javier Castellano remained suspended for a riding infraction and David Cohen without a license through the NYRA. Castellano is scheduled to return tomorrow with five mounts.
    Monmouth (New Jersey):
    • It is debatable who is having the better meet: Jorge Navarro or Jason Servis. Navarro was 5 3-1-1 today to improve to 91 38-10-20 (42%/75%). Servis failed to hit the board with either starter but his record is 39 19-4-0 (49%/74%).
    Laurel (Maryland): at the meet.
    • Race 3: I mentioned after the Ohio Derby that indications showed Ron Paolucci would give Lacey Gaudet horses for the Maryland meet(s). Paolucci, who doubles as a handicapper and an owner, races under the name of Loooch Racing Stables. This may have been the first time they hooked up. Destiny Over Fate, a first time starter, won when rider Alex Cintron took the far route -- or in racing parlance: blew the turn -- to victory. As I have said a few times, Gaudet comes from a tremendous racing family and is an up-and-comer in the training scene.
    • Race 6: Weston Hamilton won for the second time in 86 starts. In the finale, he finished second on board a 46-to-1 shot and paid $40.40 in the middle.
    • Race 9: The longest shot on the board almost went gate-to-wire but was victorious at 26-to-1.
    • Feargal Lynch won three times and now leads the rider standings in wins at the meet.
    Gulfstream (Florida):
    • Races 5, 6 and 7: Emisael Jaramillo had the natural hat trick. He had three wins on five mounts and leads the meet with 10 victories at 36%, overtaking Tyler Gaffalione.
    • Race 9: Forty Hits (David Boraco/Diosdado Iglesias) won the finale at 26-to-1. It was the second lifetime win for the trainer in more than 130 starts. The jockey rode in the opener and finale, his lone two starts of the day, and won for the second time in 57 starts in 2018..
    Ellis Park (Kentucky):
    • Race 4 and 5: Whether the Jockey's Guild has any room for sentimentality in its Jockey of the Week selection is unknown and perhaps understandably not expected but Corey Lanerie was 7 2-1-1 today with wins in consecutive races. His last win was June 17, days prior to his wife passing away at the age of 32.
    [​IMG]
    • Race 6: Summer Storm, the favorite, practically led gate-to-wire but tossed her rider Rogelio Miranda while on the lead in the stretch after veering into the rail.
    Arlington (Illinois):
    • Jose Valdivia, Jr. had his third consecutive two-win race day. Carlos Marquez, Jr. won three times. Jose Lopez won twice. The three riders combined to win seven of the nine races.. Valdivia leads the meet by 20 wins over Mitchell Murrill.
    Lone Star (Texas):
    • Race 1: Lane Luzzi rode the winner. He has ridden the winner in five of the last nine cards in which he had a mount in the opening race.
    Los Alamitos (California):
    • Evin Roman, the most recent Apprentice of the Year in North America, was 7 3-1-3 today. Hitting the board in every mount with three wins is a successful afternoon for any rider.

    July 14

    Belmont (New York):
    • Manny Franco won three times.
    Monmouth (New Jersey):
    • Joe Bravo was a perfect 2-for-2. Joe Bravo: Have Whip, Will Travel!
    • Race 8: In the $63,000 feature race won by Joe Bravo on board the favorite, Eric Cancel brought the longest shot on the board home for second place at 63-to-1.
    • Jorge Navarro, the meet's leading trainer, won once with three starters. He has won 6 of his last 11 starts and is an incredible 17 11-2-2 since July 8 at the track.
    Delaware Park (Delaware):
    • Race 8: Golden Brown (Jairo Rendon/Patrick McBurney) pulled the upset in the Grade III $200,000 Kent Stakes. The New Jersey-bred colt was the second longest price on the board at 15-to-1 and paid $33.20. He is 7 3-3-0 lifetime.
    • Race 9: Elate (Jose Ortiz/Bill Mott) won the Grade II $750,000 Delaware Handicap as the prohibitive favorite. The 4-year-old filly is now 11 5-3-1 and has become a millionaire with lifetime earnings in excess of $1.2 million. Sneaky Betty, the second longest price on the board, finished second at 85-to-1 and boosted the $1 exacta to $57.50 .

    Laurel (Maryland):
    • Race 8: Chauncey (Kevin Gomez/Lacey Gaudet), the second highest odds on the board and coming off an 11th place finish, won at 38-to-1 and paid $79.60. The horse was recently claimed for $50,000.
    Gulfstream (Florida):
    • Miguel Vazquez won four times.
    Ellis Park (Kentucky):
    • Corey Lanerie won three times on board eight starters. He has won 5 of his last 15 starts the last two days since his prolonged absence from riding in Kentucky after his wife's death.
    Indiana Grand (Indiana):
    • Six races with purses $100,000+.
    • Jockey Florent Geroux won four times including three stakes races.
    • Florent Geroux (3) and Julien Leparoux (2) combined to win five of the six stakes races.
    • Trainer Brad Cox won three times, all stakes races, and was 8 4-2-1 the last two cards.
    • Race 9: Axelrod (Florent Geroux/Michael McCarthy) rallied strongly at 12-to-1 and won the Grade III $500,000 Indiana Derby by a head just prior to the finish line. The winner paid $26.80 and wo n a stakes race for the first time in 8 lifetime starts.
    • Race 8: Talk Veuve To Me (Julien Leparoux/Rodolphe Brisset) improved to 5 2-3-0 with a 1-to-9 victory in the $220,000 Grade III Indiana Oaks. The trainer has 21 lifetime wins, 15 this year. This is his second graded stakes win.

    • The meet closed today. Onto Saratoga which opens Friday.
    • Irad Ortiz, Jr. led riders with 60 wins during the meet.
    • Chad Brown led trainers with 34 wins during the meet.
    • Joe Bravo, John Velazquez and Joel Rosario each won twice. Bravo was 3 2-1-0 today.
    • Race 7: The $100,000 feature race, Maiden Beauty (Joel Rosario/Gary Conterssa) won as the highest price on the board at 23-to-1. The aptly named first-time starter is no longer a maiden. Rosario was 8 4-2-0 the last two cards.
    • Race 4: John Velazquez ended a 31-race losing streak.
