I know that Borel is the master at Churchill. When not in KY, where does he usually ride and is he as good at those tracks? How about tracks that are out of his usual circuit -- and has he really had that much experience out of his comfort zone?
It sounds like MTB is going to need a jockey who has a good clock in his head, can figure out how to run at Mountaineer, Saratoga and Santa Anita, and can keep/put the horse in the right spot until it's time to make that run to the wire. From reading comments by Woolley, it also sounds like MTB's rider needs to have a decent amount of moxy to find those spots.
So, who might fit that description?
I bet on a horse at ten-to-one. It didn't come in until half-past five.
My horse was so late getting home, he tiptoed into the stable.

This is so frustrating. A Kentucky Derby winner, the first equine cover boy for "Sports Illustrated" since Smarty Jones in 2004, runner-up in the Preakness, and third in the Belmont Stakes--two races which I feel certain he was very capable of winning--,and yet we're having this discussion. Classy mentioned this herself on another forum and I agree with her.
This has to be unheard of for an equine star who's really done a lot this year, IMO, to bolster racing.
I think it's been a great first half of the year for our sport, and Mine That Bird deserves a lot of the credit.
