Burney, Guglielmino post two wins at GPD

GRANTS PASS — Jockey Robert Burney picked up a pair of wins in his initial time riding at Grants Pass Downs on Saturday.

The 27-year-old rider from Idaho scored the biggest upset of the day on 14-1 shot Penngrove in the third race. Burney made a stretch run from the outside on the 6-year-old mare to pull away for a 1½-length victory over second-place Papa’s Grandkids. The trifecta, with Colorful Tune, paid a season-high $413.

Burney also was victorious aboard Chele in the seventh race for 78-year-old owner-trainer Kenny McReynolds from Boise, Idaho. It was McReynolds’ first win at GP Downs.

Kassie Guglielmino, a 21-year-old jockey from Northport, Wash., registered two wins on the day to give last year’s GP Downs leading rider six on the season.

In the fourth race, Guglielmino was aboard first-place Bart the Barrister, the first horse to become a double winner at GP Downs this season.

Eduardo Gutierrez-Sosa had one victory on the card to remain on top of the jockey standings with 10 on the season. Jake Samuels also picked up one win to remain in second place — two wins behind Gutierrez-Sosa.

Guglielmino, Louis Zacherle and Jose Guerrero are tied for third with six.

Today’s feature on the eight-race card is the $7,580 Carl Alleman Bonus Challenge for quarter horses 3-years-old and up going 350 yards.

Racing secretary Shorty Martin has installed Chicks R Gone as the morning line 5-2 favorite. Chicks R Gone won its last start in an allowance at GP Downs on opening day.

Today has been designated Dutch Bros. Day. Any fan betting on the Dutch Bros.-sponsored sixth race will receive a free beverage coupon.

Gates open at 11:30 a.m., with post time for the first race at 1 p.m., at the Josephine County Fairgrounds.
