Trainer Jonathan Buckley needed just one day to surpass the number of winners he saddled during the first two months of the 2005 Finger Lakes season.

Buckley teamed up with jockey Gabriel Suarez for three wins on Monday's program, one more than the trainer had during all of April and May last year.

The 8-year-old gelding Regal Romeo ($15.80) won the second race for $4,000 claimers, then the 7-year-old mare Blonde Dynamite ($4.60) closed to win the third before A Very Young Jet ($5.60) went gate to wire in the featured eighth, a first-level allowance.

* Jockey Joel Sone began and ended a pick four that was worth $12,904 for a $2 ticket by guiding home two longshots on last Friday's opening-day card.

Sone urged I'llliteyourfire ($76.50) past You're Swingin Me in the final yards of the second race for trainer Beth Miller-Saul. In the fifth race, Denton Road ($45.20) got a similar trip under Sone. Felix Monserrate trains Denton Road, who had lost his four starts in 2005 by a combined 62 1/4 lengths.

* Omar Camejo celebrated his return to Finger Lakes by riding three winners on last Saturday's card. Camejo, 30, was back riding at the track for the first time since he sustained three broken ribs and a punctured lung in a spill on July 19.

* Crying Poverty recorded the quickest time of opening weekend for 4 1/2 furlongs when he won last Friday's first-level allowance feature by 10 lengths in 51.72 seconds. A 4-year-old colt trained by Sam Keyrouze, Crying Poverty earned a 79 Beyer Speed Figure.
