Samuels, Guglielmino win twice at GPD

GRANTS PASS — Jockeys Jake Samuels and Kassie Guglielmino captured two wins apiece Saturday in horse racing at Grants Pass Downs.

Samuels won the first and fourth races, saddled atop Fleetside and Focus Now, respectively. Fleetside gave trainer Kendra McAllister and owner Billy Lyons, both of Grants Pass, a victory as did Focus Now for Grants Pass owner and trainer Nancy Klapatch.

Guglielmino was triumphant in the third and sixth races. She won the sixth race with Katsthoughts, which was the first horse to pick up multiple wins after an opening day victory with Guglielmino, who won the third event with Wemissstacy.

With Eduardo Gutierrez-Sosa getting a win in the fifth race with Spartin, he and Guglielmino have five victories after three days of racing this season, only trailing Samuels’ seven wins.

In his GPD debut, Jorge Rosales came away with a wire-to-wire victory atop Arigato in the seventh race.

Racing resumes today with the gates opening at 11:30 a.m. and a 1 p.m. post time. The fourth day of the season’s promotion is the fourth annual Ladies Hat Day, which includes free admission for women wearing hats, with the exception of baseball caps. It also includes cash prizes in the following contest categories: Kentucky Derby style hat, Western-themed hat, hat with coordinating outfit, most original hat, as well as a category for kids.
