SARATOGA SPRINGS -- It's not over yet, but jockey Ramon Dominguez cannot leave Saratoga Race Course without at least a share of the coveted meet riding title.

Both Dominguez and Alan Garcia, who is second in the standings, have wins on the card. Garcia took the second with favored Hatheer, while Dominguez countered with Spina in the third.

Dominguez has 45 wins with eight mounts left. Garcia has 38 wins and would need to win with all seven of his remaining mounts to tie.

It will be the third consecutive title for Dominguez, who set records at both Aqueduct and Belmont Park meets that preceded Saratoga.
