Chavez rues three that got away

Jockey Oscar Chavez was left to rue three winners that got away yesterday.

The Panama-born rider was substituted on his four rides and three of them won.

GENOVA AT WORK (Race 1) and PERFECT CHARGER (Race 8) saluted with Mexican-born US rider David Flores aboard. FACE OFF (Race 6) won with leading jockey Manoel Nunes astride.

Chavez, who had been selected to provide a sample for analysis, said that he had taken medication.

Upon advising the club's medical officer of the medication taken, he was stood down from his riding engagements for the day.
