N.Y.-based Jose Ortiz has great weekend in Arkansas


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Trainer Ron Moquett brought Eclipse Award finalist Jose Ortiz to town to ride opening weekend at Oaklawn Park, and the two had a memorable run Saturday and Sunday. The New York-based Ortiz won his first local race Saturday with the promising 3-year-old Rockshaw, then locked up the late double Sunday with the impressive Whitmore and the 3-year-old maiden special weight winner Dupree.
