Jockey Evin Roman, trainer Jonathan Wong and Tommy Town Thoroughbreds were the leading jockey, trainer and owner, respectively, at the Golden Gate Fields winter/spring meet that wrapped up Sunday, June 12.

The 24-year-old native of Puerto Rico, Roman rode 87 winners over the course of the meet, four better than Pedro Terro, with purse earnings of $1.745,152. Earlier in his career, Roman won five riding titles in Southern California and was the Eclipse champion apprentice of 2017.

Wong won his fifth consecutive training title, with 71 winners from 349 starters for a 20% strike rate. Among his victories were a pair at stakes level.

Tom and Debi Stull's Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC were represented by 19 winners from 90 runners to be the meet's leading owners. All of the Tommy Town horses are trained by Wong.

Northern California racing shifts to the fair meetings for the next two months at Pleasanton, Sacramento and Santa Rosa. Racing is tentatively scheduled to return to Golden Gate Friday, Aug. 26, pending final approval by the California Horse Racing Board.
