Gaffalione, Cox Lock Up Churchill Fall Meet Titles

Brad Cox | Sarah Andrew

Jockey Tyler Gaffalione and trainer Brad Cox entered the final day of racing Sunday at Churchill Downs having already locked up their respective titles for the 14-day September Meet.

Both successfully defended their titles from a year ago and set new September Meet records for wins: Gaffalione with 25 victories through 13 days and Cox with 15.

Gaffalione more than doubled second-place Cristian Torres's 12 wins prior to Sunday's 10-race card. This will be Gaffalione's 10th riding title at Churchill Downs since 2018 and fourth-straight September Meet title.

Cox's dominant meet led him to his seventh Churchill Downs training title. He entered the final day of racing with a 15-6 win lead over second-place Kenny McPeek.

Owners Rigney Racing and Gary and Mary West tied for the leading owner title with four wins apiece.
