Latchman Visits from Barbados, Hopes to Stay Longer
 
Jockey Reshawn Latchman, who won the jockey title in 2012 in Barbados, made his second visit to Gulfstream this year. Latchman finished third aboard Take Time to Pray in the third, fifth on Daring David in the fourth and fifth aboard Dreaminofauntdiane in the ninth. The three horses were trained by Saffie Joseph Jr. Latchman rode two races at Gulfstream in February, including a ninth-place finish aboard Dashing David in the Mac Diarmida (G2).
 
Latchman, the son of jockey Rennie Latchman, will ride during the weekend at Gulfstream before returning to Barbados.
 
"I'd like to stay (at Gulfstream)," Latchman said. "I have to go back to Barbados to ride a couple horses but then I'm hoping to come back."
 
Who's Hot: Jockey Jesus Rios had two winners on the day. Rios won the third with Pontos ($7.60) and the seventh with first-time starter Layla Pa Layla ($7.40).
