Barbaro Updates: 500
updates are now here.
Update 3046: Russell Baze won the third race this afternoon at Golden Gate Fields to eclipse 10,000 winners: Baze first North American jockey to reach 10,000 wins.
Update 3045: Russell Baze, Lost in the Fog's jockey, and the winningest jockey in North America, is only one win shy of 10,000. He has five scheduled mounts this afternoon: Baze One Short of Milestone.
Update 3044: A chilly start (35 degrees) to a beautiful day, which is warming up to about 60 degrees. We had nine sets, six before the break and three after the break. The last two sets were 2yos, and its fun to ride them in bunches. We have eight going in three, three and two, all close together. Lots of banter going back and forth among the riders, and all the 2yos going very nicely. All in all a pleasant start to the day for sure.
The first major Grade 1 for older horses is being run tomorrow, the Donn Handicap. This race also serves as a prep for the Dubai World Cup, Invasor won both last year. His trainer, Kieran McLaughlin, has Daaher in this year's edition: Daaher Heads Donn with Eye on Dubai.
