US Jockey Rosario Equals Hollywood Park Record
In the US, jockey Joel Rosario equalled Hollywood Park’s record for most wins in a day when he won six of seven rides, reported bloodhorse.com. Of the day’s 8 races, Rosario finished second in the first, then won each consecutive ride (except the seventh race, where his mount was scratched). This was "the first time I do this in my life," Rosario said. "I won five before and was second and third, but now six, so I am very happy. I feel great, not many jockeys do that, so I am very happy for this.” The record was set by Bill Shoemaker in 1953, and equalled by Laffit Pincay Jr, Shoemaker & Kent Desormeaux in 1968, 1970 & 1992 respectively.
