Trainer Wayne Bearden won 4 of the 8 races at River Downs on Sunday, the only four races in which he saddled a horse.

Bearden won the third race with Ryan's Wish ($3.40), the fourth race with Witches Fuhry ($4.40), the fifth with The Spanish Hope ($3.20), and the eighth with Chile Tequila (4.60).

Three of the four were ridden by leading rider Perry Ouzts, while Witches Fuhry was ridden by Julio Felix.
