Brothers enjoy long-shot win GPD feature

GRANTS PASS — Brothers Jose and Emilio Guerrero teamed up for an upset victory in the featured thoroughbred race at Grants Pass Downs Tuesday.

Capes Hot Rocket, ridden by Jose Guerrero and owned and trained by Emilio Guerrero, was the second-longest shot at 14-to-1 in the luckii.com Sprint Series Final but won wire-to-wire in the 6 1/2-furlong race.

Capes Hot Rocket won by 1 1/2 furlongs over Banze No Oeste with a time of 1:20.15. He paid $30.80, and the purse was $17,925.

The brothers also joined forces to capture the second race, a 300-yard quarter-horse sprint, with Just Watch Him.

Jockey David Martin rode three victors, in the first, fourth and ninth races.

His mount in the fourth, Chiefs Lil Pearl, took the 5 1/2-furlong race for her third straight win of the fall meet, her sixth in her last seven races at GPD and her seventh in 10 career starts here. Mary Boyle is the owner and trainer.

The meet concludes with two full cards Monday and Tuesday. Gates open at 3 p.m. and post time is 4 p.m.
