CalX1 - Cisco Makes No. 500 A Family Affair At Cal Expo

Friday, February 10, 2012 - by Mark Ratzky, Publicity -- Cal Expo

When Gee Up came from out of the clouds at Cal Expo to pick up her initial score of 2012, it was victory No. 500 for Scott Cisco, who was piloting the pacing mare for his father Rick.

Scott, who celebrated his 33rd birthday two weeks ago, has recorded more than his share of tallies while guiding Rick’s trainees.

“I won my first ever race for my dad, which was special, and now it’s nice to also get No. 500 with one of his horses.”

On Saturday’s card (February 11), Cisco is named to drive half of the 14 races as he attempts to work his way toward the four-figure victory plateau.

Scott keeps active in the mornings helping out his wife Amanda Fraser, who currently has eight horses in her shedrow. “It’s basically just the two of us, so we keep pretty busy,” he noted.
