EDMONTON — Six-time reigning champion Rico Walcott moved closer to another jockeys’ title while Jamaican Dane Nelson rode a double to lead four Caribbean wins on the seven-race mid-week card at Northlands Park here Wednesday.

Rico Walcott steered favourite Credits Good to a 2-1/4 length win over the three-year-old and upwards, going six furlongs in race five.

Walcott leads the standings with 87 wins and is set to wrap up an unprecedented seventh straight title when the season winds up tomorrow.

Nelson, though, stole the headlines with his handsome double. He opened his account in race six with 5-1 choice Sunny Truce and followed up in race seven with a score aboard 16-1 outsider Norabelle. (CMC)
