Horse racing: Fantasy day for fans of jockey Tammi Piermarini

This isn't your typical fantasy sports story.
But when it comes to fantasizing about that big winning day at the racetrack, fans of female jockey Tammi Piermarini probably came close to satisfying that fantasy at Suffolk Downs on Wednesday.
Piermarini had an unbelievable Wednesday at Suffolk Down as the jockey phenom won the first five races at Suffolk Downs. The five wins also allowed her to be the fourth winningest female jockey of all time.
She started her day by riding Riparian Right ($7.00) to victory in the opening race. She followed that with wins aboard Dr. Mulligan ($2.60), Sevenisthenumber ($13.00), Wolf Moon ($4.40) and New England champion Technically Wicked ($6.40), respectively.
She completed the day with five wins and one second from seven mounts.
According to officials at Suffolk Downs, Piermarini, who earlier in the year became the fifth woman to reach the 2,000-win milestone, has eclipsed Vicki Baze and is now the fourth winningest female rider in history with 2,024 career wins.
She is 113 wins behind third-place Patti Cooksey (2,137). Julie Krone (3,704) and Rosemary Homeister (2,438) are the top two female jockeys with the most wins.
