Don't Let Julien Ride Your Favorite Horse

I wonder if this is some kind of record? At Churchill today, the mounts ridden by Julien Leparoux in races 1, 2, 3 and 5 were claimed. Who Goes There was claimed by Steve Asmussen for himself in the first. Ominous was claimed by Mr. Asmussen again in the second. New Awakening was claimed by Dale Romans in the third for McKee Stables. Three Mysteries was claimed by James Fugate for himself in the 5th.

All four of these horses were the favorites in their races. So this is really a testament to Mr. Leparoux getting the best rides. But, I wonder if anyone ever had 4 mounts claimed over 5 consecutive races.

They were probably favored because of him. Most of those races the winner (he won 0) was also claimed. Maybe the trainers are claiming his mounts so he'll work for them or something.
