Karlsson Boots Home Five Winners Thursday
Jockey Inez Karlsson became the first rider this season to bring home five winners on one program, completing the feat when Judy Dorris's Oughta Be Mine ($9.20) earned a hard fought victory in Thursday afternoon's ninth race.
Earlier in the card, the Swedish-born jockey tallied with Midwest Thoroughbreds' Itchy Toes ($3.40) in the second race; Eagle Valley Farm's The Elevator ($11.80) in the third; Midwest Thoroughbreds' What About It Brud ($6.20) in a dead-heat in the fifth; and Iron County Farms Inc.'s Snapped ($21.80) in the eighth.
The five-bagger gives her 11 for the season which began on May 1 and ranks her tied for fourth in the current meet standings.
Karlsson, 26, was last year's leading apprentice at Arlington, followed that success with a fall-winter riding title at Hawthorne Race Course and was runner-up in Eclipse Award voting as the nation's outstanding apprentice in 2008.
