Jockey Jeremy Rose rode five winners on yesterday's Laurel Park card, giving him an 80-75 lead over Ramon Dominguez with three days remaining in the winter meet.

Dominguez was the leading jockey at all four meets last year in Maryland on his way to the national riding title.

"It's all about being on good horses and putting them in the right spot," said Rose, who has 35 victories this month.

Yesterday, Rose scored twice for trainers Jerry Robb and Charles Hadry and once for Dale Capuano.

Last year, the 22-year old won an Eclipse Award as top apprentice, winning 312 races, including the Delaware Park riding title.

"This is awesome," Rose said. "The riding title here would mean more to me than Delaware because the colony is much stronger and I did it without the bug [apprentice weight allowance]."
