Zayas, Joseph Take Fall Turf Festival Titles
Monday, November 26, 2018


     MIAMI GARDENS - Edgard Zayas captured his second riding title in three years at Gulfstream Park West Sunday, prevailing over Paco Lopez, 47-45.

    In the trainer’s race, Saffie Joseph Jr. saddled 15 winners to claim the title. Victor Barboza Jr., who saddled a pair of winners Sunday, finished second with 13 wins.

    Zayas, who finished second last season behind Emisael Jaramillo, 50-44, had previously captured the Gulfstream Park West title in 2016 with 47 victories.

    Bruno Schickedanz and Thoroughbred Champions Training Center tied for the owner’s title with eight winners each.

    Live racing in South Florida will resume Saturday at Gulfstream Park, which will host the $1.11 million Claiming Crown on the opening-day card of the 2018-2019 Championship Meet.


     A mandatory payout of the 20-cent Rainbow 6 pool on closing day of the Fall Turf Festival yielded a $1,464 payoff for each ticket with all six winners. The multi-race wager had gone unsolved for nine racing days since Nov. 8, when a single ticket hit for a $71,152.16 jackpot payoff.

           Wagering on the Rainbow 6 began with a carryover of $123,818.96, which generated a handle of $637,162 for the six-race sequence that spanned races 5-10.
