KARLSSON BOOTS HOME FIVE WINNERS THURSDAY
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (May 21, 2009) – Jockey Inez Karlsson became the first rider this season to bring home five winners on one program, completing the feat when Judy Dorris’s Oughta Be Mine ($9.20) earned a hard fought victory in Thursday afternoon’s ninth race.
Earlier in the card, the Swedish-born jockey tallied with Midwest Thoroughbreds’ Itchy Toes ($3.40) in the second race; Eagle Valley Farm’s The Elevator ($11.80) in the third; Midwest Thoroughbreds’ What About It Brud ($6.20) in a dead-heat in the fifth; and Iron County Farms Inc.’s Snapped ($21.80) in the eighth.
The five-bagger gives her 11 for the season which began on May 1 and ranks her tied for fourth in the current meet standings.
Karlsson, 26, was last year’s leading apprentice at Arlington, followed that success with a fall-winter riding title at Hawthorne Race Course and was runner-up in Eclipse Award voting as the nation’s outstanding apprentice in 2008.
