El Alto Hombre claims GPD feature race

GRANTS PASS — El Alto Hombre continued a successful career at Grants Pass Downs Tuesday, winning the eight-race card’s feature with a victory in the 5-furlong seventh race at Grants Pass Downs.

El Alto Hombre was ridden by Jose Figueroa to a driving finish for local brothers Tony Hoover, the owner, and trainer David Hoover.

It was El Alto Hombre’s 12th time in the money in 14 GPD starts, with four wins, seven seconds and a third. This was his first win in five starts in the fall meet, which has four race days remaining. The purse was $7,500.

Figueroa also won the second race aboard Fast Movin’ Freight and was the only jockey with more than one victory.

Another local owner/trainer, Mary Boyle, saddled the winner in the fourth race, Chiefs Lil Pearl. Chiefs Lil Pearl’s second staright win was her fifth in six races at GPD.
