GRANTS PASS — It was all about jockey Luis Torres and trainer Bob Beckner on Sunday at Grants Pass Downs.

Torres won seven races, tying a track record for pari-mutuel victories in one day, five of which were horses of Beckner's. The two also teammed to win the featured race, the Daily Courier Inaugural Handicap.

It was the third time in three years Torres, the 25-year-old Mexico native, had won seven races in one day and the fourth time Grants Pass Downs has had a seven-time winner.

With seven victories in one day, Torres tied the likes of Bob Webb in 1997, Lori Giovannone and Jim Burns in 1981. Burns actually won eight races on that day, but one was a non-betting or non pari-mutuel race. His other seven wins were pari-mutuel.

Torres' previous two seven-win outtings came at the Sun Downs in Kennewick, Wash. last year and in Prineville in 2007.

As for Beckner's career-best five victories, all five came with Torres in the saddle.

The duo teammed to win three of the first four races on the day. Sandi's Speed Trap opened the day with an easy win and in the third race, Shea Ex Cop was the victor. In the fourth race, Cops Most Wanted prevailed and Dawn's Wild One claimed the seventh event.

Torres and Beckner capped the day by winning the featured race with Direct Connect for owner Harvey White, who claimed the horse on May 30. The purse for the event was $3,325.

Torres also won atop Royal Commander in the sixth race and with Run Past Thee in the 11th race for two different trainers.

Run Past Thee gave trainer Jason Homer one of his two vitories on the afternoon. Homer's other winning combination was with jockey Jamie Martinez in control of Skii a Ree in the ninth race.

Racing resumes at the Grants Pass Downs next Saturday when all women receive free admission during Ladies Day. First race post time is 12:30 p.m.
