Saenz, Broberg Take Delta Downs Titles

Delta Downs Racetrack & Casino's 2013-14 Thoroughbred season wrapped up March 15 with jockey Diego Saenz the only rider to reach triple digits in wins during the 88-day meet.
 
Saenz earned the riding title, his second at the Vinton, La., track, by winning 116 races from 487 mounts. He also was the top jockey by earnings with $2,537,385. Saenz's first title came in 2009-10 when he rode 108 winners.
 
Many of Saenz's victories came for Karl Broberg, who won his third consecutive training title by sending out 75 winners from 254 starters. Broberg's win total marked a personal high at Delta Downs as he tallied 56 wins during the 2012-13 season and 44 in 2011-12.
 
Capturing their second consecutive leading owner title this year was End Zone Athletics, of which Broberg is a co-owner along with Matt Johanson. End Zone Athletics was represented by 28 winners from 96 starters and $461,775 in purse earnings.
