Jockey Edwin Escobedo won four races on Friday night at Remington Park to make the race for the season’s leading jockey a little tighter going to the final night of the meet on Saturday.

Escobedo scored aboard Chief Iron Eagle ($4.20 to win), an Appaloosa, in race one; Mr Charlie Brown ($6.80) in race three; Hologram ($7.20) in race eight and then Mr Painted Sign ($6.80) in the 10th and final to complete his riding quadruple. The four victories give Escobedo 41 wins for the season, now just two behind leader Roman Cruz (43) going to Champions Night on Saturday.

Escobedo will need another big night and some good fortune on Saturday as he has been named to ride five races while Cruz is named to ride eight of the 12 races on the final night of the season.
