Trevor McCarthy won the most races at Laurel Park last week but Feargal Lynch won the right races.

McCarthy leads the jockey standings with 59 wins – 13 more than runner-up Horacio Karamanos. He went 6 for 23 last week.

Lynch won with five of his 16 mounts, but won three of the four stakes on Saturday. He won the $123,000 Federico Tesio aboard Twisted Tom for trainer Chad Brown, the $120,000 Weber City Miss on Lights of Medina for Todd Pletcher, and the $75,000 Henry Clark on Ascend for Graham Motion, who doubled up himself by winning the $75,000 Dahlia with Danilovna.
