Apprentice Ritvo Wins Four; Sunday's Rainbow 6 Guarantee $50,000
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Apprentice jockey Michael Ritvo spent most of his afternoon in Gulfstream Park's winner's circle after winning four races on the afternoon.
The 19-year-old Ritvo, who won his first race in March at Gulfstream, won aboard Flash Winner ($10.20) in the second, Explosive Image ($14) in the third, Encrypted ($5.40) in the sixth and Lucasta ($4) in the 10th. Ritvo finished second aboard Osaka Joe in the first race and sixth aboard Russian Night in the Soaring Softly in his only other mounts.
"There's highs and lows," Ritvo said. "The first few races everything went well and things got better. It's a lot easier to ride when you get into that zone."
