ANTONGEORGI HAS RIDING HAT TRICK


ALBANY -- William Antongeorgi III, the third-leading jockey at Golden Gate Fields, rode three winners at the East Bay track Friday.

Antongeorgi won with his first mount of the day, Topper's Smiling ($4.60), who scored a hard-fought victory in the second race. Antongeorgi finished last aboard 6-to-5 favorite Meetyouatyogi's in the third race before bouncing back to score an easy five-length victory with Feel Free to Flee ($7.00) in the fourth.


Antongeorgi completed his riding hat trick when he won the sixth race by a nose with Larszilla ($11.60). Antongeorgi has won 74 races at the 2008-2009 winter/spring season.

Golden Gate Fields will present nine-race programs Saturday and Sunday. Post time both days is 1:15 p.m.

Golden Gate Fields will kick off its Spring Concert Series Sunday when it presents the high-energy pop/soul group Pride & Joy, one of the Bay Area's most popular dance bands. Sunday is also "Dollar Day," with the track offering $1 general parking, $1 general admission, $1 programs, $1 hot dogs, $1 beers and $1 sodas.
