Robby will be a 5% jock at Gulfstream
I hope he does well at Gulfstream but it will be tough since Fair Grounds seems like a more better spot for him to go to. Robby hasn't had a great couple years due to his personal life. So will be interesting to see how he does there since it's a tough colony out there. Though I'd probably expect Corey Lanerie to have a better Gulfstream though because he's the top rider in Kentucky this year and typically the top Kentucky rider always does good at Gulfstream and with Julien Leparoux joining the Southern California riding colony, this makes it easier probably for Lanerie to do well there. Recently, Brian Hernandez has decided to join the Gulfstream colony too so it'll be hard. I hope Robby does well he's a great jockey and really am rooting for him to comeback where he left off before he started beating women up. I wanna see Robby turn it around and have a great career like he was back in the 2000's.
You must have snoozed thru the past few meets to see how Calvin Borel performed there.......
Lanerie and Albarado will be 5% jocks at Gulfstream. They will get the pick of the litter of mounts.
Borel to be quite honest really isn't as good as people think he is. I mean he is good but I think he's just average despite him owning CD and his Derby wins too. As you said, he couldn't perform well at GP or Saratoga. What's left to say about him outside of CD? Has he even won a title at Keeneland?
Well Leparoux held his own at GP and am sure pat day did too.
The Monmouth riders always do better at Gulfstream than the Kentucky riders. Paco Lopez is always among the top 3
at Gulfstream and Elvis Trujillo also does well in South Florida.
Not if your name was Julien Leparoux in 2012. Though I'd expect Paco Lopez to be a threat.
Javier Castellano destroyed Julien Leparoux in the win column 112 to 60 at last year's Gulfstream Park meet. Coming in
third when you are 52 winners back ain't saying much of your ability.
I was meaning cracking the top 3. Not being leading rider. Of course Castellano destroyed them all last season. But this season look out for Joel Rosario he'll be his main competition.
