Rodolpho Sanchez-Salomon, who got his training license in 2017, won his first title at the Laurel Park summer meet with 19 victories, one more than Claudio Gonzalez. Sanchez-Salomon, who works closely with his assistant, Joanne Shankle, at Laurel, had worked for trainers Scott Lake and Dane Kobiskie before going out on his own.
“I don’t know exactly what I feel right now, but I’m very happy,” Sanchez-Salomon said. “It’s been a great meet. Everything has been great for us. We’ve been very blessed. I thank God and thank my help and thank everybody. I have no words to say how I feel, really. I appreciate everything.”
Sanchez-Salomon, a native of Mexico, is having his best year so far with 48 wins and earnings of $1.5 million through Sept. 1. He had a four-win day and a three-win day during the Laurel summer meet.
