Great Lakes Downs track report


Jockey Luis Martinez, 56, who was off for most of September with a shoulder injury suffered in a Great Lakes Downs paddock mishap, is back in a big way, winning four races on Monday evening's card.

Martinez, a native of Panama, won the second race aboard Pass Bye ($8.40) and the third aboard Dat's Ma Loot ($4.60). He then won the seventh aboard Neent ($40.40) before winning with Reasonable Code ($3.60) in the ninth.

All of his winners except Neent are trained by his brother, Pedro Martinez. Neent is trained by Jamaican native Trevor Bundy.

* Trainer Robert Gorham lit up the board for the second time in a week when he saddled Magical Powers ($97.80) to a win in Tuesday's fourth race, a maiden special weight. Magical Powers was bred by Gorham's wife, Erin, and her mother, Judith Worline. Tommy Molina rallied Magical Powers around horses on the turn and closed sharply in the six-furlong race.

"He was a major overlay in that race," Gorham said. "He wanted to be a goofy stud colt and lay on horses, so I gelded him. We added blinkers and got results."

Magical Powers was raised with Out With a Bang and outworked him frequently, Gorham said. Out With a Bang surprised last week in the $50,000 Patrick Woods Stakes, paying $238.80. Gorham said the Michigan Futurity on Nov. 2 would probably be Magical Powers's next start.

* The sixth race Saturday will be run in memory of Bernice Drumwright, who died Aug. 5 in Detroit. Her husband, trainer John Drumwright, has been at Great Lakes Downs since its inception in 1999 and for decades was a regular at the now defunct Detroit Race Course, Hazel Park, Hialeah, and the Fair Grounds in New Orleans. He trained Gat Stable's Thumbsucker to a win in the Michigan Mile.
