Rettele starts strong at Pinnacle


Trainer Richard Rettele and veteran jockey Jose Delgado teamed for four winners on the opening-day card at Pinnacle on Saturday. The pair scored with Ocean's are Wild ($13.80) in the second and Music Conductor ($9.40) in the sixth. They then closed the day winning the eighth race with Cheries Challenge ($4.60), who ran her win streak to four, and the ninth race with Native Britches ($14.20).

Bob Gorham, the leading trainer at both of Pinnacle's past meets, was winless Saturday but found the winner's circle twice Sunday. Teamed with jockey Freddie Mata, who won three races on the card, Gorham won the fourth with Buscando Fortuna ($6.80) and the ninth with Curley Mac ($29). Gorham was the runaway leader last year with 83 wins, 47 more than his nearest competitor.

Trainer Charlie Williams won back-to-back races Sunday with his own runners. Wonderbred ($3.20) won the second race, followed by Far East ($3) in the fourth. Both were ridden by Alexis Ortiz.
