Jockey Emisael Jaramillo moved to within four victories of 1000 North American wins while riding two winners on Sunday’s program at Gulfstream Park.
The 43-year-old native of Venezuela guided Erv’s Wench to a three-length victory in Race 8, a seven-furlong maiden special weight for 3-year-old fillies. He came right back to notch No. 996 aboard Roddick ($10) in Race 9, prevailing in a tight photo in the 1 1/16-mile $12,500 claiming race that was moved from turf to a sloppy main track.
Jaramillo rode more than 4000 winners in Venezuela, where he was a 13-time champion, before venturing to South Florida in 2015. He has ridden more than 200 winners in each of the last four years, primarily at Gulfstream and Gulfstream Park West.
