Plenty of racing action took place throughout the Mid-Atlantic this past week.

Here’s a look at the “three stars” of each track:

FIRST STAR: DULCIMER DAME. This 6-year-old mare has torn her way through Charles Town this year. On Thursday, she won for the sixth time this year, taking a first-level allowance race by 1 1/2 lengths as the 1-10 favorite. She’s the only North American horse who has won six races this year; no one on the mainland has even won five, and only three other horses in the 50 states have won four. She’s back in the box on Thursday in a bid for her seventh win of the season. Arnaldo Bocachica had the winning mount for owner Richard Burnsworth and trainer Anthony Farrior.

SECOND STAR: GUSTAVO LARROSA. Larrosa achieved a milestone on Saturday, when he piloted home his 1,000th career winner. He rode Master This to victory in a West Virginia-bred claiming race for trainer Mike Butts, getting to the four-digit mark after just over 48 hours of sitting on 999. Larrosa won on his first career mount at Charles Town in April 2003 and has since accumulated more than $19.4 million in purse earnings. At the current meet, Larrosa has ridden 10 winners from 69 mounts.

THIRD STAR: JAIME RODRIGUEZ. Rodriguez put the icing on the Laurel Park winter jockey race this weekend, with hat tricks on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, he won race 3 aboard Running River, trained by John Salzman Jr, race 7 with Rudy Sanchez-Solomon-trained Six the Hard Way, and the 8th race on Excellorator, trained by Jamie Ness. On Sunday, he prevailed in race 3 with St. Jude, trained by Ben Perkins, race 6 with Tim Salzman-trained Ladneedsahandler, and race 7 aboard Awesome View, trained by Michael Gorham. With one day left in the winter meet, Rodriguez has an 11-win lead on runner-up Jeiron Barbosa, which ensures Rodriguez of the riding title.
