Moreira's Record 8 Wins On Brazil Card
In South America, jockey Joao Moreira "established a new record for most wins on a single racing card at Hipodromo Cidade Jardim in Brazil, as he booted in eight winners on Saturday's 11-race card at the Sao Paulo track," reported thoroughbredtimes.com. He eclipsed Albenzio Barroso's previous record of 6 wins on 1 card. Moreira (who was Sao Paulo's leading rider last year & currently ranks 2nd this season behind Nelito Cunha) rode briefly in France last year when privately contracted to ride horses owned by Stud Estrela Energia.
