Edgard Zayas and Saffie Joseph, Jr. concluded the Spring/Summer Meet at Gulfstream Park Sunday as the leading jockey and trainer, respectively.

Zayas, who was winning his third straight Spring/Summer riding title at the Florida oval, finished with 124 wins.

“I have to thank all the owners, all the trainers for all their support all the time,” said Zayas, whose meet was punctuated by his victory aboard Bill Mott-trained Outfoxed (Valiant Minister) in Saturday's $400,000 My Dear Girl S. “I also want to thank my agent [Tito Fuentes] and my family. It's the whole team, not just the jockey and the horse. It's the whole team behind them.”

Joseph, who won the 2020 Spring/Summer Meet title with 59 wins, saddled a pair of winners on Sunday's program to push his meet-topping total to 71 victories.

Arindel led all owners during the Spring/Summer Meet with 17 winners, most notably Octane, a homebred son of Brethren who captured Saturday's $400,000 FSS In Reality, as well as the $200,000 FSS Affirmed in his previous start.
