Paco Lopez, the leading rider here in 2010, visited the winner’s circle five times on Saturday, including with Pants On Fire in the Skip Away.  

            “I am really happy. Yesterday was a great day,” he said after checking in to the jockeys’ room on Sunday morning. “But it wasn’t my first time. I had five winners in one day here last year, and also did it at Gulfstream and Calder. I’m feeling really good and am comfortable with the way I’m riding right now.” 

Lopez currently leads the standings with 12 wins from 38 mounts. On Saturday he won the first race with D’Marin ($3.20), the seventh with Afternoon Treat ($3.20), the eighth with Exclusive Strike ($7.20), the 11th with Pants On Fire ($2.80) and the 12th with the aptly named Super Saturday ($4.80).
