Four Winners on Saturday for Kevin Gomez

Laura McKinney’s homebred Clever Triad sprinted to front-running 1 3/4-length victory in Saturday’s featured eighth race to cap a four-win afternoon for jockey Kevin Gomez.

Sent off at 5-1 in a field of eight 3-year-olds and up for the $42,000 entry level allowance, Clever Triad ($13.20) ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:01.99 over a firm Bowl Game turf course for his second win from seven career starts.

On a day where the temperature reached the mid-90s, Gomez also finished first aboard Tiz Emily and Jill ($6.20) in the second race, 2-year-old Stay Thirsty colt Alwaysmining ($8.20) in the fourth and Lily Rae ($12) in the sixth.

“Thank God, everything came together and we had a good day today. Hopefully we can keep it going,” Gomez said. “It’s very hot out there. Some horses are winning from in front and some are getting tired the last part and getting beat at the wire. It played good for me today, so I’m glad.”
