Monmouth: Navarro wins five races to tie his own record

Trainer Jorge Navarro tied his own record for wins on a Monmouth Park card Sunday, when he won five races.

Navarro sent out the winners of races 2, 3, 6, 7, and 8 on the 11-race card. In all, Navarro sent out nine horses in seven of the afternoon's races.

Navarro's winners were Aztec Sense ($2.80), Be a Hero ($3.40), Indian Guide ($4), Terry's Charm ($2.80), and Indian Chaser ($7).

Remarkably, Navarro used five different riders on his winners. Paco Lopez, Isaac Castillo, Angel Arroyo, Eric Cancel, and Manny Jimenez all rode Sunday winners for Navarro.

Navarro won five races on a Monmouth card July 23, 2017, to break a tie of four wins that he jointly held with J. Willard Thompson, Bob Klesaris, John Forbes, Bruce Alexander, and Kiaran McLaughlin.

Navarro has been the leading trainer at Monmouth the last five years, tying him with John Forbes, Juan Serey, and Budd Leppman for the most titles.

The only other trainer to win five consecutive titles is Serey, who did it from 1995 to 1999.
