Jesse Campbell, below, was the only jockey to bring in two wins from the 11-race card today at Woodbine Racetrack, and both wins – aboard Silent Jimmie in the seventh and Call Me Wally in the ninth – were for Paul M. Buttigieg-trained horses.
Call Me Wally, below, was the only one to get the celebratory shower post-race, though, and picked up its second win in as many starts since coming in first last June 30.

…, but it was Patrick Husbands who brought in Piven for the win in Race 6, as Rafael Hernadez, below, describes his second place finish in the race.

It’s always tough keeping Eurico Rosa da Silva off the win sheet at Woodbine, especially when a stakes race is on the line, and da Silva came through in Race 8 aboard Melmich for a win in the Grade III Seagram Cup.
Da Silva rode Melmich at the back of the seven horse field for most of the race, but stormed down the stretch from the outside with plenty of horse to nip Are You Kidding Me at the wire by a nose in a photo finish.
