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

Doubledogdare.

”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.”
