OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) - Jockey Paco Lopez rode seven winners at Monmouth Park on Saturday, tying the track record he set three weeks ago.

The 28-year-old Lopez, a native of Veracruz, Mexico, won the second, third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth and 11th races.

In the feature race, Sweet Emma Rose went wire-to-wire to win by a neck in the $60,000 Crank It Up Stakes. Ridden by Abel Lezcano and trained by Wesley Ward, the 3-year-old filly ran the 5 1/2 furlongs over a firm turf course in 1:03 flat and paid $13.80, $6.40 and $4.80.

Rogue Lady paid $16.20 and $7.80, while Red Minx was a head back in third and returned $4.

The win was the third in seven career starts for Sweet Emma Rose, who has now earned $139,197 overall
