Barron H keeps on winning at Turf Paradise

EmailApparently, the 9-year-old Barron H isn't ready to retire any time soon. The veteran warrior registered his 18th victory in 70 starts in the fourth race at Turf Paradise last Friday.

Ridden by Chris Landeros for trainer Troy Bainum, the favored Barron H ($3.60) won in a hand ride by six lengths, covering the 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:03.98.

"He's an old trooper and his record speaks for itself," Landeros said. "He just galloped for the fun of winning."

In addition to all those wins, Barron H has 17 seconds and 10 thirds, and has earnings of $383,318.

* Leading rider Landeros put together back-to-back three-win days Monday and Tuesday.

"Trainers are giving me opportunities and things are going my way right now," said Landeros, 19. "I feel grateful."
