Rosario ties Shoemaker with 6 winners at Hollypark

Joel Rosario has ridden six winners at Hollywood Park, tying a

track record originally set by Hall of Fame jockey Bill Shoemaker

in 1953.

Rosario rode five consecutive winners on Friday, sat out the

seventh race, and then won the eighth with Stockings to tie the

mark Shoemaker set on June 20, 1953.

Shoemaker repeated the feat in 1970. Laffit Pincay Jr. equaled

it in 1968 as did Kent Desormeaux in 1992.

Rosario finished second in the first race and his mount in the

seventh was scratched. The 24-year-old rider from the Dominican

Republic leads the jockeys’ standings with 31 winners, eight ahead

of Rafael Bejarano.

Rosario twice rode five winners during this year’s spring-summer

meeting at Hollywood Park.
