Carr Stays Hot At Golden Gate Fields

Carr Stays Hot At Golden Gate Fields

     Jockey Dennis Carr, who rode four winners on New Year’s Day at Golden Gate Fields, didn’t cool off during the track’s off days Wednesday and Thursday.

    Carr came back to ride two more winners Friday, taking the second race with Beau Diablo ($4.60) and the fourth with There Goes Donnie ($6.20).  Only a photo finish loss in the first race – aboard Letsgetitright, who was beaten a head by favored Lord’s Minister ($4.80) – kept Carr from a riding triple.

     Carr is off to a great start in 2013 as he has six wins and three seconds from 12 mounts this year.

     Jockey Russell Baze, who rode three winners on New Year’s Day, also notched a riding double Friday.  Baze book-ended the card, winning the first with Lord’s Minister and the eighth and final race with Cajun Market ($5.20).

     Trainers John F. Martin and Jedd Josephson both saddled a pair of winners Friday.  Martin took the second race with Beau Diablo and the seventh race with Last Sting ($3.20).  Josephson won the fourth race with There Goes Donnie and the eighth with Cajun Market.

     Racing continues at Golden Gate Fields Saturday and Sunday.  Post time both days is 12:45 p.m.
