Guerrero posts pair of big wins at GP Downs

GRANTS PASS — Jose Guerrero was one of three jockeys to win a pair of races Saturday at Grants Pass Downs, including the day’s marquee seventh race when Guerrero guided Canada to victory in the Oregon HBPA Stakes race to highlight First Responders Day at the track.

Canada ran last week in Pleasanton, California and was shipped north by owner Travis Boersma and trainer Quinn Howey for the big event, which moved Canada’s career earnings over $94,000 for the 6-year-old gelding.

Guerrero also rode Crazy Dude to victory in the first race of the day, allowing Grants Pass owner Tony Hoover and trainer brother David Hoover to score a win in the horse’s debut at the track.

Also producing a pair of triumphs were jockeys Brandon Boulanger in the second and fourth races and Eduardo Gutierrez-Sosa, who won the third and sixth races.

In the eighth race, He’s a Bugin managed its fourth win in six races at GP Downs and its 13th career victory overall.

A crowd of 2,265 was on hand and produced an overall handle of $48,628, including $30,882 from on-track wagering and $17,746 from off-track betting.

Action resumes at 1 p.m. Sunday at GP Downs and will feature the sixth annual Ladies Hat Day, where all ladies wearing a hat — excluding baseball caps — earn free admission. Cash prizes will also be awarded in several best hat categories. Gates open at 11:30 a.m.
