Parkers Rose beats long odds at Grants Pass Downs

GRANTS PASS — It was a day of longshots and big payouts, capped by Monday’s featured race at the Grants Pass Downs.

After the track’s leading jockey Kassie Guglielmino captured the first three races of the day to run her season win total up to 16, jockey Taylor Smith earned his first win at GPD the saddled atop Parkers Rose in the TMB Girls Stakes and overcame 87-1 odds to pocket the $12,700 purse which paid $176.40 to the winners.

Not only did Parkers Rose have the longest shot of winning the race but won it in impressive fashion by 2 1/2 lengths.

Parkers Rose earned trainer Bill Hof, who was this summer’s GPD leading trainer, $6,985 on a day when not one betting favorite earned a win as there were five trifectas that paid over $900, which came in race Nos. 4,5,7,8 and 9.

Guglielmino’s victories came atop Council Miss, Grand Minister and She Flys Forever in the first three races. Her husband Jake Samuels, the track’s second-leading jockey, upped his total to 13 with a victory aboard Racing Ray.

Jaime Lopez picked up a pair of victories on the afternoon, the first was in the fourth race with Curlew Slew and again mounted atop Jersey Red in the ninth and final race of the day.

Racing resumes Sunday for the Oregon Championship Day which features 11 races, including seven thoroughbred Oregon championship races. Post time is at noon.
