Ramon Dominguez on Little Mike
worst ride=mario guitterz on he had enough. had him to close to the pace got him stuck down inside behind a wall of horses, he moved up to 3rd on the far turn and then dropped back to 7th then the horse put his nose in front at the 16th pole and he let the horse drift out giving the horse he just passed a half length lead, then came again only beat a nose.
had he sat back 10 lengths off the pace and made one run circling the field he wins by 3 lengths.
I thought in that race we saw bad rides by the 2nd and 3rd place finisher jockeys. Mario Gutierrez on He’s Had Enough and Joel Rosario on Capo Bastone. Mario was blocked in the stretch and costed the horse the win but I don’t know if it would win since Shanghai Bobby didn’t want to give up the lead. Joel’s ride on Capo Bastone was bad that he has the horse blocked and went too wide coming for him. Would’ve been a factor if hadn’t been too blocked.
This isn't worst ride category this the best ride category

I thought C Nak on Tapizar was the best ride. Also thought Tapizar was the least deserving winner. He's just run to many bad races. I guess I'm just not very forgiving.
I met Corey Nakatani today and he seemed like a nice guy. Got his autograph. That ride yesterday was great.
The ridiculously souped up, speed favouring, track made many undeserving horses WINNERS.
Closers had really no chance. Tapizar a perfect example of a bad horse taking advantage of the bias..
nkould have been suspended for life for what he did on a horse a few years ago, beating the horse over the head with the whip 10 times after the race was over. worst jockey ever. he gets way more horses beat than he helps. worst jocket ever.
I know that Corey has had his issues over the years. But I think Nakatani seems like a changed person. Yes Nakatani makes mistakes when riding horses sometimes but still has some life left in him. One of the very few vets still on the national stage.
He did ride a good race in the Mile. Seems maybe he spent some time looking at the Form and knew his competetors and rode his horse accordingly.
