Maldonado Triples at Del Mar

Backers of jockey Edwin Maldonado were well-rewarded on Wednesday when the 29-year-old native of Columbus, Ohio, booted home three winners with $2 win payoffs totaling $55.80.

Maldonado’s triple came with Itsphun ($18.40) in the second race, Iron Joe T ($15.00) in the sixth and Classic Bobby ($22.40) in the seventh.

“We’ve had two-win days at Santa Anita and Del Mar, but hadn’t broken through with the third before,” said Vic Lipton, Maldonado’s agent. “I think he’s riding exceptionally well right now. All three of those horses he broke from the gate well and finished strong. He did everything right.”

The three wins boosted Maldonado’s win total for the meeting to seven, good for fifth in the rider standings, 10 behind co-leaders Rafael Bejarano and Garrett Gomez. Maldonado had six victories at Del Mar in the 2011 meeting, his first here. He rode in Canada and Louisiana before switching to the Southern California circuit for the 2010 meeting at Fairplex Park.
