Jockey Joe Bravo won six races on Monday's card at Monmouth Park, equaling his own mark and matching that set by Julie Krone, Chris Antley, and Walter Blum.
Bravo's six-bagger started in race one with Sunnywin ($6.80), continued in the fourth aboard Smartgabrielle ($7.20), the fifth atop Bold Mon ($7.20), the tenth on Xchanger ($11.60), the 12th aboard Reata's Rocket ($5), and concluded with the 13th and last race on Jackie Lad ($6).
The first rider in track history to ride six winners on a single card was Walter Blum on June 9, 1961. The mark went unequaled for more than 20 years until Chris Antley did it on July 30, 1984 and Julie Krone followed on Aug. 19, 1987. Bravo's six-pack on Monday was the fourth time for the 34-year-old native of Monmouth County. He had previously won six races on Aug. 31, 1994, May 18, 2002, and Sept. 18, 2005.
