Hardly Hemmin and Hawin

There was little hesitation or indecisiveness by Woodbine jockey Emma Jayne Wilson in Race 1 of Friday’s racing card at Toronto’s Woodbine Racetrack despite riding a horse named Hemmin and Hawin.

Wilson, below tossing her whip to a groom, brought the Ian Black-trained Ontario bred two-year-old across first for her first of two wins today.

Wilson’s other first on the day came in Race 8 aboard Roxham.

…but came up short to Rafael Hernandez, below, coming off the track following the win.

Hernandez is the winning jockey of 2015 Queen’s Plate-winning horse Shaman Ghost, and is amazingly riding winners even after having a terrible fall in February at Gulfstream Park in Florida which left him with a broken collarbone, fractured ribs and having one of his kidneys removed.

Hernandez rode three horses to wins at Woodbine today.

And it was two wins for jockey Gerry Olguin on the day as he brought Chief Chato, below, across first in Race 4 and Butterfly Strike in for Bear Stables in the last race of the day.
