Red-Hot Luis Saez Records Second Straight Four-Win Day At Gulfstream Park

Fresh off a four-win day Wednesday, jockey Luis Saez added another four trips to the Gulfstream Park winner’s circle Thursday to take over the top spot in the Championship Meet standings.

The 29-year-old native of Panama, who won back-to-back Championship Meet titles in 2016-2017 and 2017-2018, entered the day tied with idle Paco Lopez with 12 wins apiece before scoring aboard Whiskeyonhislips ($3.40) in Race 2, Current Situation ($8) in Race 3, Bird Wildcat ($5.20) in Race 6 and Avow ($4.20) in Race 10.

“I love to ride at Gulfstream Park; it’s so familiar; it’s where I first came to from Panama,” Saez said. “The horses are running good for us, and my agent is doing a wonderful job. I’m very grateful.”

Kiaran McLaughlin teamed with Saez following his retirement from training last year.

“I’m blessed to be with him. He’s very classy,” Saez said. “I’m doing good and very happy.”

Saez is used to winning races in bunches at Gulfstream, where he rode a record-equaling seven winners on a card Jan. 24, 2018 and March 29, 2018.

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 gross jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $150,000 for Friday’s program at Gulfstream Park, four racing days after a jackpot of $407,067.66 was taken down by one lucky bettor last Saturday.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 4-9.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot is paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Who’s Hot: Jockey Tyler Gaffalione doubled aboard Dominant Joy ($2.40) in Race 1 and Seizing the Dream ($7) in Race 8.
