Graham Wins Five Races at Arlington Park

Jockey James Graham visited the winner's circle five times afternoon Saturday at Arlington International Racecourse booting home the winners of races three, four, six, seven and eight.

Graham's victories on the card were Gary Biszantz's Helen Kathleen ($7.40) for trainer Mike Stidham in the third race; Gary Tussey's Dream Commander ($8) for trainer Chris Dorris in the fourth; Edward Seltzer and Beverly Anderson's Sparkling Review ($10.80) in the sixth; and consecutive winners for trainer Richie Scherer - Holmark Stables' Bourbon Cowboy ($3.80) in the seventh and Al and Bill Ulweilling's Slip Kid ($15.60) in the eighth. An all Graham Pick 3 covering races six through eight paid $71.10.

"Everyday is a good day as long as we can walk home," said the soft-spoken Irish-born Graham, who was quick to play down the accomplishment as is his wont.  "Every race is different.  Every horse is different.  Today is my day.  Today is the horse's day.  I'm just glad to be a part of it."

The five Saturday winners -almost exactly a year since his last Arlington five-bagger on Aug. 18, 2013 - pushed his meet total to 64 and vaulted Graham into first place in the Arlington jockey standings three wins to the clear of jockey Florent Geroux.

It was, however, not Graham's best day at Arlington --- back in 2007 the rider booted home six winners on card.
