DOMINGUEZ BECOMES 2nd JOCKEY TO WIN 6 ON ONE DAY AT SPA
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Ramon Dominguez, the reigning two-time Eclipse Award winner as Outstanding Jockey, joined Hall of Famer John Velazquez on Sunday as the only riders in the 144-year history of Saratoga Race Course to win six races on a single card.
“I am very excited. Coming into today, I looked at the program and was very excited about my chances,” said Dominguez, who won on six of seven mounts. “We all know luck is a big factor. Everything clicked into place. I am very happy to win six races. At Saratoga, it’s anybody’s dream. This is a place you want to do it, for sure. Saratoga is really the meet. It doesn’t get any better than this. I give [my agent, Steve Rushing] all the credit in the world. He puts me in the position to do this consistently and do well. Then again, if you ask him, he will give all the credit to the trainers and the owners, and rightly so. I am very happy people support me.”
