Cornwell rides 5 Charles Town winners


CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Jockey Richard Cornwell had a banner day at the Charles Town Races yesterday, booting home five winners during the 10-race card.

Cornwell, 29, a native of Alexandria, Va., won the fourth race with TLF Broodmare Partnership's Reason To Ramble, the fifth race with Brian Jones' Dancer Rullah and the sixth race with Elmer Miles' My Disco.

After sitting out the seventh race, Cornwell captured the eighth race aboard K. and W. Anderson's Zen Again and then guided Faye and Victor Espinosa's Faye's Friend to victory in the ninth.

Cornwell's only unplaced ride came in the 10th race, aboard Theodore Shapiro's Setup.

A $2 win wager on each of Cornwell's six mounts yesterday would have netted the bettor $38.80.
