Can’t-miss jockey

Tue., Oct. 16, 2012

Irish jockey Richard Hughes (pictured) won seven of the eight races at Windsor (England) Racecourse on Monday, a feat that totaled combined odds of 10,168-1. Bookmaker Paddy Power says Hughes cost it about $1.2 million, with one person winning $136,400. Hughes won the first race on board 13-8 joint-favorite Pivotal Movement and the second with 5-2 favorite East Texas Red. Further victories came on Embankment (7-1), Magic Street (4-1 favorite) and Links Drive Lady (5-2 favorite). After finishing third on Ever Fortune, Hughes was back to winning half an hour later on Duke Of Clarence (7-4 favorite) before rounding off an unforgettable day on Mama Quilla (15-8). Jockey Frankie Dettori won seven races in a day at Ascot in 1996. – Associated Press
