Mark Guidry Now Fourth All-Time at Arlington

(from Arlington Park notes)
Veteran jockey Mark Guidry, enjoying a highly successful mid-summer return to Arlington Park, became the fourth leading rider in Arlington history with a pair of victories Sunday.

He entered Wednesday's racing with 82 Arlington wins during his career.

Guidry, Arlington's jockey champion in 1992 and 2000, tied the retired Ray Sibille for fourth on the all-time Arlington's leaders list with his win aboard Jay Em Ess Stable's Road Show, trained by Paul McGee, in Sunday's fifth race.

Guidry, 46, came right back to the winner's circle astride Frank Calabrese's Bold America, trained by Wayne Catalano, in Sunday's sixth race to take over the fourth spot.

Two Hall of Fame members – Earlie Fires and Pat Day – occupy first and second positions, respectively, on Arlington's all-time leading rider list, with veteran Illinois' jockey Carlos Silva in the third spot.

Fires' next winner will be his 2,800th at Arlington and the 6,356th of his career.
