Frey Rides A Pair Of Winners At Golden Gate Fields

     Jockey Kyle Frey rode a pair of winners Saturday at Golden Gate Fields.

     Frey took the first race, a six-furlong allowance sprint for 3-year-old fillies, with Irish Presence, who overcame some traffic to win by a head over Power of Ten.  Irish Presence had to check when even-money favorite Hollanita drifted in front of her at the top of the stretch.  Irish Presence quickly regained her momentum and outran Power of Ten through the final furlong to earn her second win in seven starts.

     Irish Presence, trained by Eoin Harty, was timed in 1:11.46 and paid $6.20.  Power of Ten took second by 3 1/2 lengths over even-money favorite Hollanita, who suffered her first loss in four starts.

     Frey came back to win the fifth race, a six-furlong maiden event for 3-year-old fillies, with Hot List, who rallied from fifth in a field eight to score by 2 1/2 lengths over 9-5 favorite Graceful Minou.  Trained by Sergio Ledezma, Hot List broke her maiden in 1:13.14 and paid $9.00.

    Frey was the only jockey or trainer to win multiple races on Saturday’s nine-race program.

     Racing continues at Golden Gate Fields Sunday.  Post time is 12:45 p.m. and the track is offering $1 general parking, $1 general admission, $1 programs, $1 hot dogs,

     The feature race Sunday is the eighth race, a 1 1/16-mile allowance test for
4-year-olds and up.  Among the six entrants in the main event is Massone, a 7-year-old horse who has earned $570,292 despite having won only two of his 40 career starts.
