Jockey and Trainer Races Still Tight

In the quest for leading trainer and jockey honors, things didn't change too much on Friday.

Zoe Cadman had two winners on the day after getting tossed in the first race when Beth's Bo stumbled badly leaving the gate. Chris Emigh, who trailed Cadman by four winners going into Friday's card, picked up one as he was sent to the winner's circle three times. However, those playing Emigh in all the races today would have gone home a bit wealthier. He scored upon Blushing Banannie ($25.20) in the sixth and followed that up with a $36 win aboard Idle Minds in the seventh.

Trainer Tom Dorris didn't score with either of his starters today but Mike Reavis did have one winner. They are currently tied with 11 winners apiece.

With two victories today, Christine Janks joined the hunt. She and Hugh Robertson are currently tied for third with nine wins.


Not quite sure to make of it but Nancy Vanier's St. Chapelle, by European sensation St. Jovite out of the mare Bungalow, at one time the love of Illinois, turned in, unquestionably, the most impressive race of the meet. This Vanier homebred didn't show anything in a dirt sprint in her career debut but things changed dramatically with the switch to the grass and the stretch in distance. She had been trailing the field for most of the race, at one point at least 15 lengths off the lead, but exploded in the stretch to win by a length. What made the race even more impressive was that she made that move against a glacial pace. Get the feeling we'll be seeing some good things from her in the future.
