Jockey Joe Bravo pumps his fist in the air after winning his sixth race of the card at Monmouth Park.
Joe Bravo tied a Monmouth Park record by riding six winners Sunday.

Bravo, who also had six-win days in 1994 and 2002, tied the mark set by Walter Blum (1961), Chris Antley (1984), and Julie Krone (1987).

The six-win performance all but wrapped up a record 11th Monmouth title for Bravo. The meet ends on Sept. 25.

``It just makes you feel really good to have all the trainers and owners that are behind me and let me get on their horses,'' Bravo said. ``This is just awesome.''

Bravo rode Comacina to win No. 5 in the feature, the $60,000 Blue Sparkler Stakes. He then won aboard Excellent Job in the 10th.

Comacina went six furlongs in 1:10 3-5 and returned $5.80, $3.60, and $3. Traci Girl was second and paid $3.40 and $2.80. Every Trick paid $3.60 to show.
