Apprentice wins with first mount


Eulices Gomez, 22, guided Neiman the Saint to a three-length victory in Saturday's first race at Bay Meadows, winning aboard the first mount of his career.

A Los Angeles native, Gomez has been galloping horses for three years, including runners for trainer Keith Craigmyle, who saddled Neiman the Saint ($6.40) in the $16,000 claimer for 3-year-olds at six furlongs.
