HALLANDALE BEACH - Luis Saez rode five winners on Wednesday’s card at Gulfstream Park, closing the gap on leading jockey Irad Ortiz, who holds a 123-115 edge during the Championship Meet that concludes March 31. “I just try to concentrate on my races and try to win,” said Saez, the defending two-time Championship Meet titlist, “and whatever happens, happens.”
The 26-year-old Saez, who has ridden more than 2,100 winners, took both ends of the early double aboard Breaking Bread ($6.20) in Race 1 and Noncents ($29) in Race 2 before scoring three straight aboard Florida Cotton ($3.20) in Race 6, Sonoma Storm ($4.80) in Race 7, and Elias My Love ($8.80) in Race 8.
“I thought I could have a good day. I just tried to do my best and the horses ran pretty good for me today. I’m so glad, so proud,” Saez said.
Saez rode seven winners twice during the 2017-2018 Championship Meet and owns a share of the Gulfstream record for most wins in a day with Jerry Bailey (1996) and Tyler Gaffalione (2017).
