Freddy Castillo rode two winners yesterday at Timonium Race Course, including the featured Housebuster Purse.
Castillo, who leads the Timonium jockey standing with 12 victories with one day remaining, gave Kelly's Class a perfect ride to win the four-furlong allowance race in 46 seconds over a sloppy track.
Bold Jag and Mouse Man battled for the lead from the first jump out of the gate to the top of stretch when Castillo made his move on the 4-year-old colt, which he had lying in third. Castillo took Kelly's Class wide and pulled away with a rush through the stretch to beat Mouse Man by 2 1/4 lengths.
The victory was the third in the past four starts for Kelly's Class, trained by Fred Groves. The colt is 12-for-31 in his career and has earned $122.940.
L Castillo also won on Proven Ties ($4.20) in the fourth race.
Castillo leads second-place Alberto Delgado, who is seeking his third consecutive Timonium riding title, by three victories.
