Fresh off clinching the leading jockey title at Churchill Downs on Sunday after winning 11 of his last 19 starts at the Louisville track, Lanerie didn't waste any time making his presence felt at Ellis. In the first race of the meet, he guided Stitch's Publicpick to her first victory in a 5 ½ furlong claiming race for fillies and mares 3 years and older.
