Cedeno won six Thoroughbred races on Delaware's Wednesday card, then returned for her seventh victory of the day in the final, an event for Arabians. The seventh win was a first for any rider at Delaware, though six other riders have each notched six-win days.
Cedeno's six Thoroughbred wins were by a combined 11 lengths, and just two were post-time favorites. The six wins included four consecutive wins to start the card. She was on a heavy favorite in the Arabian race, winning by nine lengths.
The three-time leading rider at Delaware is on track to earn yet another riding title, leading the current meet with 31 wins in 139 starts. She has finished in the money on over half of her starts at the 2018 meet.
Cedeno was the leading rider last week by number of wins, and had nine Thoroughbred wins in 25 starts, for a win rate of 36%. She finished in the money on 56% of her mounts.
The native of Puerto Rico landed at number 31 in the top earnings for the week and she rode in and won races at two tracks: Delaware and Laurel.
She added $130,030 in earnings to her yearly total of $1,196,846, and she has career earnings of over $17.5 million. In 2018, she has won 48 of her 354 starts and she is 725 for 5,720 lifetime.
