Just when Steve Cauthen’s most loyal fans were beginning to wonder when the 17-year-old jockey was going to end a slump that had extended through 22 straight races along came the boy wonder to quell their doubts with six winners in eight appearances on the card yesterday at Aqueduct.
The teenage jockey’s performance was even more significant in that only one of his winning mounts was the favorite.
He now has 460 winners this season – 418 in New York. He is the first jockey to reach the $5 million mark in one season.
