Tuesday, 8th July 2008

Also in North America, jockey Jose Valdivia Jr guided maiden Hiatus (Maria's Mon-Chasm, by Gulch) to victory in the 7th race at Hollywood Park to land his 1,000th career win to date. The Peru-born rider, whose tally of victories include the 2004 Santa Anita Derby, 2006 Del Mar Oaks and 2007 E.P.Taylor Stks, won his first race at Belmont Park back in 1994 at only his third time out. Valdivia went on to make it 1,001 over the weekend, pushing Get Funky (Straight Man-Miss Popularity, by Storm Bird) home to land the eighth race on the card.
