Dominguez, Dutrow Win Belmont Titles

Two-time reigning Eclipse champion jockey Ramon Dominguez won the Belmont Park spring/summer riding title for the fourth straight year, bringing home 70 winners during the 56-day meet that concluded Sunday.


Dominguez, the leading rider on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit this year, rode winners of more than $4.5 million during the meet and won seven stakes, including Grade 1 victories aboard Tapitsfly in the Longines Just a Game and Desert Blanc in the Woodford Reserve Manhattan on Belmont Stakes day.


Javier Castellano finished second with 60 victories, followed by Jose Lezcano (43 wins) and Rosie Napravnik (35).


It was the 17th NYRA meet title for Dominguez, who next will try to attempt to earn a second Angel Cordero, Jr. jockey title at Saratoga Race Course, which opens on Friday, July 20. Dominguez, 35, took the riding title at the Spa in 2009.


Rick Dutrow, Jr. was the leading trainer at the Belmont spring/summer meet, saddling 27 winners, with Christophe Clement finishing second with 22 victories. Ken and Sarah Ramsey were the leading owners with 11 wins.


The 144th meet at historic Saratoga Race Course will feature 40 days of top-class racing through Labor Day, September 3. First post is 1 p.m. daily, with special post times of 2:30 on July 27 and August 31. On Travers Day, August 25, first post is 11:35 a.m.
