Rider's 7-Race Win Streak Ends at Golden Gate

Jockey Silvio Amador extended his winning streak to seven consecutive races at Golden Gate Fields Aug. 30 before his run was ended later on Saturday's card.

Amador won the opener with Whilly Pink ($6.40) and saw his string extend to seven in a row in the fifth race with Cava Kavia ($9.20). But his impressive run of victories came to an end in the sixth race, when he finished third aboard Twin Six.
 
The rider began his streak Aug. 24 at Golden Gate when he won with both of his mounts, Gabbro Glitz ($15.60) and More Champagne ($23.40). He went 2-for-2 Aug. 28 as well, scoring with Deep Reflection ($8.60) and Loveintheshadows ($4). He tallied with his lone mount the following day, Flyingtothefinish ($4).
 
The U.S. record for consecutive wins by a jockey is nine, set by Albert Adams in 1930 and equaled by Tony Black in 1993 and Russell Baze in 2006. The North American record is 14, set by Tim Moccasin in 2001 at Marquis Downs in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
