Chalk players rejoiced after race six, as Lana’s Lovely won, returning $3.40 to win under Joel Rosario. A Meadowbrook Farms homebred, she is a 3-year-old Florida-bred filly by Roar of the Tiger.

Rosario made it back-to-back wins in the seventh, as he guided Cigar Man to a 1 ¼ length victory, paying $24.80 to win. Trained by Vladimir Cerin, Cigar Man is owned by Manzani or Sarno.

Jockey Garcia registered his second win of the day in Wednesday’s eighth, as Hiho Geronimo lit up the tote board at $30.00 to win. Trained by Mike Mitchell, the 4-year-old Kentucky-bred gelding by Indian Charlie is owned by La Vida Loca Racing Stable or Tommy Hutton’s Dream Stable.
