GRANTS PASS — Jockey Luis Torres had a big day at Grants Pass Downs on Sunday. But veteran rider Darlene Braden didn't fare as well.

Torres, the co-leading jockey at GP Downs last season, picked up six wins on the 11-race card. The 26-year-old jockey from Mexico won four straight races — the sixth through the ninth.

Torres won eight races on the two-day weekend of racing and leads all riders with 11 firsts this year. Hugo Hererra is second among jockeys with seven wins and Terrance Birdrattler stands in third with six.

Torres won seven races at GP Downs on June 21 of last year.

Braden, 49, got injured in the fourth race when her mount, Rapid Pat, clipped heels with Casual Outing, ridden by Ruben Camacho, going into the first turn in the 51/2-furlong thoroughbred allowance. When Rapid Pat went down, Mojave Cat tried to avoid the mishap coming up from behind and jockey Stephanie Keever was jostled off the horse.

Braden has been diagnosed with a broken right leg. Keever didn't appear to sustain any serious injuries but did not ride the six other mounts she was scheduled on Sunday.

Both horses, Rapid Pat and Mojave Cat, are reported in good condition by track official Tag Wotherspoon.

A pair of Grants Pass trainers, Brenda Estes and Mary Boyle, registered their first wins of the season.

Estes scored with the 5-year-old quarter horse Sinamon Chick in the second race covering 300 yards for maidens.

Boyle's horse, Chocolate Star, went wire-to-wire to win the 41/2-furlong allowance in the sixth race.

War Wager was the first horse to register two wins during this year's meet when the 3-year-old John Martin trained thoroughbred won the eleventh race as the odds-on favorite. War Wager broke his maiden here on June 20.

Flip Nollar, who hadn't ridden at GP Downs for over a decade, picked up his first two wins of the meet Sunday. Nollar, 54, had been riding in Louisiana for the past four years but returned to Oregon to be closer to his stepdaughter who had a baby about a month ago.

Defending leading trainer Bob Beckner picked up three wins Sunday and leads all trainers with six on the season. Patti Harris is second in the standings with four and Mike DeMatteis is third with three.

Racing continues on Saturday with three days of racing over the Fourth of July weekend. Post time is 12:30 p.m. each day.
