Joe Talamo booted home five winners at Del Mar Aug. 2, including a brilliant performance by Irish-bred Obviously in the feature, a one-mile grass contest (VIDEO).

He swept the day’s first two races on Beau Royale ($5.20) (VIDEO) and The Roan Ranger ($6.40) (VIDEO), nabbed the fifth on Indy Beauty ($12.60) (VIDEO), and capped his big day with a win astride Northern Iowa ($12.60) in the nightcap (VIDEO).

Obviously, owned by Anthony Fanticola and Joseph Scardino and trained by Mike Mitchell, took command early to win by five lengths in a superb 1:32.41. The 4-year-old son of Choisir returned $8.20 after winning his fourth race in 14 starts.

Talamo increased his victory total for the season to 17 with his five-bagger, only one behind leading rider Garrett Gomez and tied for second with Rafael Bejarano.
