Digest (March 24): Jockey Antonio Quiles rides his first winner in America at Laurel Park

Lady by Choice took the lead after a half-mile and pulled away to a 10¾-length romp in Saturday's seventh race at Laurel Park to give apprentice jockey Antonio Quiles his first winner in the United States. Lady by Choice ($16.40) ran one mile in 1:37.50 over a fast main track to win first time off the claim for winter-spring meet-leading trainer Claudio Gonzalez in the $32,000 claiming event for 3-year-old fillies. Quiles, a 21-year-old native of Puerto Rico, rode two races at Camarero in his home country before coming to the U.S. He made his stateside debut Feb. 16 at Laurel and rode in four previous races finishing second with Fifties Music March 18 and third aboard Kazzie Cottonwood on Friday. ... The father and son combination of jockeys Steve Hamilton and apprentice Wes Hamilton combined to win five of Saturday's nine races, including four in a row. Wes Hamilton, 19, who rides with a 7-pound weight allowance, continued his recent hot hand with three victories. He was first with Majestic Pic ($7.20) in the third race, Shecor ($5.80) in the fifth and Injaazaat ($4) in the eighth. Steve Hamilton posted a riding double, winning aboard My Chesa Charm ($5.40) in the fourth race and Goodonehoney ($18.80) in the sixth.

Jackpot grows: The 20-cent Rainbow 6 went unsolved Saturday at Laurel Park, pushing the jackpot carryover to $134,181.56 for today's eight-race program. First race post time is 1:10 p.m. A total of $53,694.59 was bet into the popular multi-race wager Saturday, adding to a carryover of $117,000.06 from Friday's program. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $5,154.44.
