Jockey Eddie Castro established a record for victories at a single Calder meet when he rode his 194th winner of the Calder session aboard Mysterious Light in Friday's eighth race, breaking Walter Guerra's old mark of 193 wins in 1979. Castro also set a national record for most victories on a single card earlier in the meeting, riding nine winners on June 4. . . .
