The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


HRI Edited Release — Defending two-time Eclipse Award champion Irad Ortiz Jr., who rode three winners Friday and four winners Saturday, brought home six more winners on Sunday’s 11-race card at Gulfstream Park.

            “I’m having a great meet so far. I’m so happy right now. I’m enjoying the moment. My agent [Jay Rushing] is doing a great job. I’m getting the best support from all the owners and trainers. They support me a lot here,” Ortiz said. “I’m so happy. My family is here with me. I’m living the dream right now.”

            The 27-year-old Ortiz, who won the Championship Meet title last season with 135 winners, tops the current standings with 88 winners.

            Sunday, Ortiz scored aboard aboard Sassy Justice ($6) in Race 1, Fashion Babe ($6.60) in Race 6, Liana Susquehanna ($5.80) in Race 7, Sweet Mia ($10.20) in Race 9, Miss Munnings ($7.60) in Race 10, and Lookin At Roses ($4.80) in Race 11.
