HALLANDALE BEACH - Apprentice Joseph Trejos continued to flash star quality at Gulfstream Park while producing a four-win afternoon on Friday. Trejos, who rode his first winner in the U. S. at Gulfstream on April 18 after winning 44 races in Panama, has won 29 races during the Spring/Summer Meet.
A graduate of the Laffit Pincay Jr. jockey school, where he was selected as the outstanding rider in his December 2018 graduating class, Trejos swept both ends of the early double aboard Josefa ($15.20) in race 1 and Mister Leonardo ($30) in race 2, both of whom were saddled by Antonio Sano. The 23-year-old, five-pound bug boy followed up with back-to-back victories aboard R Calli Kim ($10.40) in race 4 and Matraca ($6.40) in race 5.
Rainbow 6 Carryover Jackpot Guaranteed
Today’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 carryover jackpot will be guaranteed at $400,000. The multi-race wager went unsolved for the fifth consecutive day Friday, and multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $681.
Today’s sequence will span Races 7-12, featuring a mile optional claiming allowance on turf for 3-year-olds and up in Race 11. Live Oak Plantation’s Souper Jaguar will seek to repeat a recent front-running score against Florida-bred competition at the same non-winners-of-one-other-than level.
‘Yesterday’ Looks to Recapture Past in Portofino Bay
Yesterdayoncemore will look to recapture her winning form in Sunday’s $60,000 Portofino Baby, a 1 1/16-mile overnight turf stakes for 3-year-old fillies.
Trained by Patrick Biancone, the Irish-bred daughter of No Nay Never has gone winless in four starts since scoring in the Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf in her Sept. 2, 2019 U.S. debut. Owned by D P Racing LLC, Mrs. Paul Shanahan and Mrs. M. V. Magnier, Yesterdayoncemore, who ran five times in Ireland, broke her maiden in the Del Mar stakes. She finished off the board in her next three races before finishing an unlucky second while coming off a four-month layoff in a June 28 optional claiming allowance at Gulfstream. Luca Panici has the return mount.
