Castellano & Jacobson Capture Belmont Titles

Belmont Park
The 2013 Belmont spring/summer meet ended on Sunday with Javier Castellano and David Jacobson comfortably atop the jockey and trainer standings.

 

It was the first spring/summer meet title for both Castellano and Jacobson, who respectively won 72 and 44 races.

 

Castellano, who had previously garnered the 2011 fall meet riding title at Belmont, posted stakes wins in the You Go West Girl (Dayatthespa), Bouwerie (Lovely Syn), Astronomia (Barbie Wire), Three Coins Up (Jaguar Paw), Open Mind (Street Secret), NYSS Cupecoy’s Joy (Frosty Bay), and Fairy Garden (Samitar). It’s the fifth NYRA meet title overall for Castellano.

 

Junior Alvarado finished second with 58 wins, 10 ahead of third-place jockey Joel Rosario.

 

Jacobson’s 44 wins broke the previous meet record of 40, set in 2003 by Todd Pletcher. Among Jaocbson’s victories was a score in the Affirmed Success with Saginaw. Jacobson has now been the leading trainer for seven NYRA meets, including this year’s Aqueduct Racetrack spring meet.

 

Pletcher, who captured the 2013 Belmont Stakes with Palace Malice, won 27 total races. Chad Brown was third with 23 wins.

 

One of Jacobson’s clients, Drawing Away Stable, easily won the owner title with 27 wins. Drawing Away owns Saginaw in partnership with Jacobson. Darley Stable and Midwest Thoroughbreds tied for second with 11 wins.

 

Racing will resume on Friday, July 19, at historic Saratoga Race Course, which is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year.
