Rosie Napravnik, injured in a morning workout accident at Churchill Downs on June 16, returned to race riding on Friday afternoon at Saratoga, finishing sixth out of 10 horses in the fifth race.

Ken and Sarah Ramsey, who took home the title for leading owners last year at Saratoga, got their first meet winner when Joes Blazing Aaron went wire to wire in the seventh race. The gelding was ridden by Javier Castellano, who was leading jockey at last year's meet.

In other news, Jess's Dream, a son of champions Curlin and Rachel Alexandra, could make his debut at the Spa, but it would it would be sooner rather than later, according to owner Barbara Banke. The colt is still at the training farm in Ocala, and Banke stated that she was still looking for a trainer.

“I think there is a 20 percent chance he could run here,” Banke said Friday. “But it would be later in the meet.”
