DOMINGUEZ WIDENS LEAD IN JOCKEY STANDINGS WITH 5-WIN WEDNESDAY


OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Two-time reigning Eclipse Award winner Ramon Dominguez continued to widen his lead in the Aqueduct Racetrack inner-track jockey standings by bringing home five winners on Wednesday, including a sweep of the final three races.

Dominguez began the afternoon by piloting Fiscal Stimulus ($7.40) in race 1 and returned to the winner’s circle following race 4 aboard favored What’s the Record ($3.20). The 37-year-old rider then fashioned his own late Pick 3 ($136) beginning with longshot Coosada ($23.60) in race 7, continuing with Midnight Visit ($8.20) in race 8, and wrapping up with Nolita ($4.20) in the ninth and final race.


In his other mounts, the Venezuelan-born Dominguez finished sixth in race 2, third in race 5 and fourth in race 6.

Dominguez, who also rode four winners at the Big A on February 1, is on top of the inner-track jockey standings with 73 winners, nine ahead of second-place Cornelio Velasquez.

In 2011 on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit, Dominguez twice rode five winners on a single card, had one six-win day and set the NYRA record for consecutive victories with seven over a two-day period on December 14 and 15.
