Morales moves up rider standings with Saturday triple


OLDSMAR, Fla. – Pablo Morales posted a riding triple on Saturday’s program to give the 26-year-old rider 17 wins on the meeting. He currently ranks seventh in the standings at Tampa this season and is starting to pick up steam after a slow start, but according to his agent, Mike Moran, the rider’s work ethic still is strong, and he has business with some solid stables such as John Terranova’s. The agent thinks Morales’ stats will improve even more as the meet progresses.
