Davila, Englehart tops again at Finger Lakes

EmailJohn Davila Jr. and Chris Englehart continued their dominance of the jockey and trainer standings at Finger Lakes in 2007.

The live racing season ended two days earlier than scheduled when snow and freezing temperatures forced officials to cancel programs on Monday and Tuesday.

Davila, 44, set a track record by winning his sixth consecutive riding title with 158 winners. John Grabowski, who made a successful comeback from a fractured pelvis at age 45, finished second with 120 winners, including the 3,000th of his career in September.

Englehart captured his fifth straight training crown and seventh overall by saddling 117 winners. His horses amassed a meet-best $1,282,518 in earnings. Charlton Baker was the second leading trainer with 87 winners and purse earnings of $1.24 million.

The meet's highlight came on July 4 when a crowd of 11,429 fans - the third largest in the track's 46-year history - watched 2003 Kentucky Derby winner Funny Cide capture the final start of his career in the $100,000 Wadsworth Memorial Handicap.
