Jack Doyle continued his relentless climb up the 2019 jockey standings when he won Foxfield Fall’s three hurdle races on Sunday and raised his weekend total to five victories.
Doyle had opened the racing program at Charlottesville, Va., with a victory aboard Gill Johnston’s Be Counted in a $15,000 maiden claiming hurdle for trainer Todd Wyatt. He then rode KMSN Stable’s Inverness to a victory in the $20,000 maiden hurdle for fillies and mares. Keri Brion trained that winner.
He closed out the Foxfield program with a 1 3/4-length win aboard Hudson River Farms’ Skydiving in the $3o,000 Virginia Equine Alliance maiden hurdle for trainer Jonathan Sheppard. He also rode two winners at the Races at Shawan Downs on Saturday, including Hudson River Farms’ Codrington College in the Brown Advisory Legacy Chase, and concluded the weekend one win behind leader Michael Mitchell.
