From the Churchill Downs Media Team:
Lloyd Madison Farm’s multiple graded stakes winner Sconsin, the 9-5 second choice in Saturday’s $300,000 Dream Supreme (Listed), has been scratched from the race and will get time off before her 5-year-old campaign.
“This race was going to be her last start of the year before a little winter vacation,” trainer Greg Foley said. “She wasn’t acting like herself the last couple mornings so we didn’t want to chance anything. She’ll get a break and get ready for a 2022 campaign.”
Lothenbach Stables’ Bell’s the One is expected to be the heavy favorite in the six-furlong affair. The Dream Supreme is Race 10 on Saturday with a post time of 5:36 p.m.
GAFFALIONE WINS SIX RACES FRIDAY AT CHURCHILL DOWNS – Six-time Churchill Downs leading rider Tyler Gaffalione added his name to the record books Friday when he notched six wins beneath the historic Twin Spires.
It was the 12th time a jockey has won six races on a single card at Churchill Downs but the first since Corey Lanerie in 2012. This was also the first time since 1907 that a rider has won with all six of their mounts, equaling Jimmie Lee.
Gaffalione won the first three races on the card aboard Not That Serious ($8.80), Jazzy Lady($4.40) and Cousteau ($4.80). The 27-year-old jockey did not have a mount in Race 4 but won with his next three mounts Megan’s Clara ($4.60), Candy Tycoon ($10.80) and Sarah Harper ($3). Gaffalione was originally scheduled to ride in Races 8 and 9 but his mounts were scratched.
“I was joking with the guys in the room that I wanted to ride one more and get the record,” Gaffalione said. “It was a really good day at the track.”
Jockeys Julien Leparoux (2008) and Pat Day (1984) are the only two riders to record seven wins on a single card at Churchill Downs.
Prior to Lanerie’s six wins on May 27, 2012, the other times the feat occurred were by Jamie Theriot (2008), Julien Leparoux (2007), Calvin Borel (2007), Day (1999, 1992, 1991, 1984), Randy Romero (1985), Steve Brooks (1948) and Lee (1907).
Gaffalione won seven races at Gulfstream Park on July 4, 2017.
