Jockey Hernandez Records Riding Hat Trick
Jockey Juan Hernandez, capitalizing on some live mounts, recorded a riding hat trick Friday at Golden Gate Fields.
Hernandez won the second race with even-money favorite Pairodice Ridge ($4.00), the fourth race with 9-5 second choice Perfect Set ($5.60), and the eighth race with 3-2 favorite Mia Isabel ($5.00).
Hernandez ranks second in the Golden Gate Fields rider standings with 39 victories. Russell Baze tops the standings with 66 victories.
Trainer Genaro Vallejo saddled a pair of winners. Vallejo teamed up with Hernandez for the victory with Pairodice Ridge and then hooked up with Baze for a victory with Victoriously Jewel ($4.20) in the sixth race.
Rain or shine, racing continues Saturday and Sunday at Golden Gate Fields. Post time both days is 12:45 p.m.
