Dominguez hits record with second six-timer
Report: USA, Sunday
JOCKEY Ramon Dominguez achieved the notable feat of riding six winners on a single card at Saratoga on Sunday - for the second time during the seven-week summer meeting at North America's most beloved venue.
Dominguez, who has won the last two Eclipse Awards as the nation's champion jockey, also established a new Saratoga record by taking his tally to 66, two more than the 64 victories recorded by John Velazquez in 2004.
Velazquez also holds a share of the single-day record, having ridden six from ten mounts in September 2001. Dominguez numbered went six from seven on Sunday, just as he did on July 22.
Dominguez's latest half-dozen concluded with a 10-1 success on Unbridled Command in the Grade 3 Saranac. His other winners were Cue The Moon, Native Wave, Dorothy's Spirit, World Premier and Temper In Command.

So Many Ways (Tony Dutrow/Javier Castellano), winner of the Grade 3 Schuylerville Stakes earlier in the meeting, moved up to the top level to complete back-to-back victories here for her trainer after Grace Hall in 2011.
Sent off nearly a 4-1 shot, the daughter of first-season sire Sightseeing came from off the pace to win going away by two and a half lengths from Sweet Shirley Mae, who rallied to get past the fading odds-on favourite Teen Pauline.
