Hope that Bejarano don't ride like this for the SA long meet.
Ernie, you seem to have a keen eye for this type of stuff. You ever consider being a jockey?
What's better TV Hosts or Jockey?
What makes us a hero can also make us a goat. Riding on the grass such a double edged sword. Save all the ground, find a way through and you're a genius. Get stopped and you're a bum. Race shapes and trips dictated that both Euroglide and Drift King were going to need room. In those cases there was no room at the Inn. I persoanlly don't think that means Bejarano rode them poorly. Sometimes a jock has to play the hand they were delt. Maybe he could have got out on Euroglide never had any options with Drift King. The guy has been a world class elite rider for many many years. What he does is fabulously difficult. Sometimes things don't work out. Bet against him in the future at your peril.
My opinion is that his confidence is shattered right now. Making all kind of mistakes during the races. Proof is Maldonado and
Garcia are riding circles around him. RB needs this break in the schedule to regroup and get his sh*t together. He has
been awful since before the Breeder's Cup.
More like since his suspension too.
He's better off returning to Turdway Park
I agree IMO. He's so better than the top 2 or 3 riders right now. Its so surprising the way he's riding right now. I hope he can redeem himself for the SA long meet. Everyone could sure use a vacation for that week long gap.
LOL. I think he's IMO much more than that just that or a Kentucky rider too. I think he can compete with this bunch out here in CA. It'll be a matter of time before he starts winning a CA riding title.
Not sure how you can judge confidence by watching races but you're entitled to your opinion.
Bejarano will be more than fine.
