Given his dominance of the jockey standings at Churchill Downs, Pat Day is nearly certain to make history today in Louisville, Ky. The runaway leader at the track's spring-summer meet with 45 victories and winning at a 34% clip, Day is one win away from becoming the third rider to win 8,000 races. Trying to join Laffit Pincay Jr. and Bill Shoemaker in the exclusive club, Day has seven mounts on Churchill Downs' 10-race card and none is higher than 9-2 on the morning line.

Eighth in the Santa Anita standings a year after he won his 13th title at the Arcadia track, Laffit Pincay split with longtime agent Tony Matos Tuesday morning. The world's second winningest rider, the 43-year-old Pincay will now team with Jerry Ingordo, who spent 11 years with Pat Valenzuela before severing that relationship last fall. Most recently, Ingordo worked for Gary Boulanger, who, after limited success locally, departed several weeks ago and is now riding at Longacres.

Once again, Sir Beaufort was well supported in the $82,800 La Puente Stakes Wednesday at Santa Anita. He was the 11-10 favorite, marking the seventh time in eight career starts that he has been the public choice. Never have the odds on the Pleasant Colony colt been longer than 9-5. For a change, Sir Beaufort didn't disappoint his fans. He won for only the second time, beating 5-2 second choice Shapiro's Hero by three-quarters of a length in 1:49 1/5.
