Bowen claims second title

AUBURN – Rocco Bowen won just once in 11 rides on Sunday’s season-ending programme but it was of academic interest as the Barbadian jockey wrapped up his second successive title at Emerald Downs.

The 28-year-old scored in race eight with favourite Betrbegone to bring his final tally for the 2017 campaign to 126 wins – an increase of 16 wins over last year’s performance.

Bowen also claimed 92 seconds and 79 thirds from 506 starts overall, and ended with US $1.22 million in winnings.

Julien Couton finished well behind in second on 65 wins with Kevin Orozco third on 63 and Eswan Flores, fourth on 46. (CMC)
