Castellano Rides Four Winners On Thursday Card, Takes Lead In Jockey Standings
LAUREL, MD. 01-26-12---Abel Castellano rode four winners Thursday afternoon to take over the top spot in the jockey standings at the Laurel Park winter meeting.
The 28-year-old won aboard Lord Kipling ($3.40-second), Yano ($4.40-third), Myrasira ($7.20-seventh) and Diner Gal ($6.20-ninth).
“I am riding a lot of good horses which is giving me confidence,” said Castellano, who rode a career-best five winners here on April 5, 2008. “It is all about confidence for me. Riding for top trainers has been huge and I have been taking advantage of it.”
Castellano now has 11 trips to the winners’ circle, one more than Sheldon Russell. Julian Pimentel, Erick Rodriguez and Alberto Delgado are two back.
