its all about being in with the right barns. when baze came down to so cal to ride regularily he was a 5% jockey, but that had to do with riding 20to1 shots instead of riding 3to1 shots.
ever noticed how a jocks win % shoots way up when he gets with the right agent?
Actually he won at a 14% clip for the 2-3 years that he was down there. He rode in mixed barns because Hollendorfer wasn't down there at the time.
He also won a GRI on Hawkster in world record time while he was down there.
(2:22 I believe for 1.5 miles)
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
Avatar: My cuzin Isaac Murphy - a jock I'm tying to emulate in character and winning percentage - almost 47% lifetime.
Baze has over 2200 wins for Hollendorfer alone.
He was between 11% - 14% for the few years I was here when he was here. (Does that make sense?)
America must have the highest "goofs per capita" rating of any nation outside Antarctica.
Perhaps the best post in the history of DMFF.
im always hearing about who the best jockies are or ever have been on this forum and several
clutch jocks never get a mention. for about a 5 year time period no jock in southern california
was better in big races than donald pierce. or how about manny ycaza dude was money, how about
bralio beaza (sp)
best 3 jockies in my lifetime
the 4th best jock was substantially below those 3 over the last 60 years
Think youse guys are missing the point. Did these types of arguments break out when Cal Ripken was on the threshold of breaking The Iron Horses record?
I think Lou might have had more Rings than Ripken did, but that was not the headline.
You can take the man away from the racetrack, but you can not take the racetrack out of the man.
are you talkin about the times i had him singled in the last leg of a p3? because i felt like he rode me hard and put me up wet many times
