PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Jockey Eliska (el-ish-ka) Kubinova won this season’s riding title at Portland Meadows.

Kubinova split her summer between Portland Meadows and Emerald Downs near Seattle before focusing full-time on the Delta Park oval. She dominated the fall and winter races, and concluded the meet that ended Sunday with 55 thoroughbred wins.

Kubinova finished second in 2011-12 before spending most of last season at Santa Anita and Hollywood Park. She returned to the Pacific Northwest in the spring and plans to be at Emerald Downs when its season starts in April.

Trainer Jim Fergason captured the training title. He posted 34 wins, including three stakes winners.
