Husbands picks up five wins on Thursday
TORONTO, November 27 * Jockey Patrick Husbands enjoyed a stellar day at Woodbine on Thursday afternoon, visiting the winner's circle five times in eight tries.
The 35-year-old Brampton resident won the first five races that he had a mount in. Husbands kicked off the five-bagger in race one with Miss Redoubled ($8.60), capping off the 'double' with Queen Bambi ($8.80) in the second. Seaside View ($7.70) took the fourth, Creekside Cafe ($10) won the sixth and Intuition Magic ($4.70) triumphed in the seventh.
The record for most wins on a Woodbine card is seven, set by Richard Grubb on May 16, 1967, and equaled by Sandy Hawley on May 22, 1972 and again on October 10, 1974.
