Leading Men At GGF Add To Victory Totals With Big Days

     Golden Gate Fields’ leading men, jockey Russell Baze and trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, padded their victory totals Thursday afternoon.

     Baze won half of the races on the eight-race card while Hollendorfer notched a “natural” training hat trick by saddling the winner in three straight races.

     Baze won the first race with Birdie Girl ($6.80) and then teamed up with Hollendorfer for his next two victories, taking the third race with English Royal ($4.60) and the fifth with Wild and Gotaway ($3.60).  Baze completed his four-bagger when he captured the sixth race with Adorci ($10.80).  

     Hollendorfer swept races three through five with English Royal, Big Honey Bee ($10.80) and Wild and Gotaway.

     Baze leads his colleagues with 57 victories at the 2010-2011 winter/spring meeting.  Hollendorfer is atop the trainer standings with 33 wins.

     Racing continues Friday at Golden Gate Fields.  Post time is 12:45 p.m.
