With less than three months to go to the end of the racing season at Parx Racing, Philadelphia, Venezuelan rider Mychel Sánchez is on his way to his second consecutive championship in the United States.
Sánchez, nephew of the Zuliano Ángel Alciro Castillo accumulates 101 visits to the winner's venue and 2.628.664 dollars in production for the owners, figures that allow him to dominate the contest over the American Frankie Pennington, who has 1.320.305 dollars and 72 visits to the venue of winners.
According to the equestrian portal Equibase.com, Sánchez entered the US ovals in the 2013 season and in his campaign he has 745 victories with 718 second places and on 669 occasions he has occupied third place during 4.768 performances, a figure that allows him to surpass the $ 23.669.865 in production for the owners, until last Sunday's meeting.
This season, the Venezuelan rider occupies position 39 in the United States national statistics, a harvest dominated by Puerto Rican Irad Ortiz Jr.
Mychel Sánchez joins the list of Venezuelan riders who have won titles in the North American ovals.
Jineta gains stat
For the sixth time, Puerto Rican jockey Carol Cedeño conquers the statistics at the difficult and competitive racetrack in Delaware, United States.
With 74 wins and $ 1.886.053 won for the owners, against Angel Suárez's 56 laurels and $ 1.501.538, the Puerto Rican secured another title for her successful campaign as a driver of career thoroughbreds.
Cedeño is close to tying the mark with retired American Michael McCarthy in number of titles in Delaware and would surpass two-time Eclipse Award winner and Hall of Famer Ramón Alfredo Domínguez, who won five Delaware titles in the 2000s.
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican has been riding on US racetracks since 2007, after making her debut that year at El Comandante de Canóvanas Racetrack, Puerto Rico and getting her first triumph there with the native Rey Divino.
Gunnevera to brood
The horse that performed under the training of the Venezuelan Antonio Sano, will be destined for breeding for the next year.
Dialed's son in Unbridled Rage, winner of six races in 12 appearances, was unable to return after his injuries and will be taken to Ocala to rest for his first riding season in 2021 at an undisclosed ranch.
