Leparoux ties Keeneland record with 6 wins in day
Jockey Julien Leparoux equaled a 22-year-old Keeneland record by
winning six races in one day.
The 28-year-old Leparoux tied Randy Romero and Craig Perret, who
both won six races in April 1990.
Leparoux, who had eight mounts, started out Friday with
consecutive wins on Rhonin Victoria and Love Reigns.
After a fourth-place finish on Pisgah Station, he won four in a
row riding Rally Point, Sum of the Parts, Julie’s Love and Into the
Fray. He came up short in his chance to break the record, finishing
second by a neck on Kathmanblu in the $100,000 Grade 3
”It was a great day,” said Leparoux, who had Kathmanblu in
first place heading into the backstretch. ”I was really thinking I
could get it.”
