Hard to believe that lesser jocks get better mounts than Gutz down here. Best of luck to Mario

Never mind the 2 Stakes wins for Cecil aboard Quiet Oasis (including the Grade 2 Royal Heroine yesterday)?
He's much better than most riders in the room down here - it's an absolute shame that he's not getting more quality mounts.
He should try switching agents before bailing. I think he's taking the easy way out. He'll be riding a lot of $2500
claiming races at Hastings Park. Doubt if Southern California trainers will embrace him if the comes back to
SA in the fall.
He probably was out of his comfort zone riding one or two races a day. At least he's already established himself at
Hastings Park and will ride a full compliment of horses there.
I've read that he likes Vancouver and he has friends and a girlfriend there. Pretty normal for him to want to go home.

Hastings' quality is better than what most people think. Certainly a ton better than Emerald.
Don't forget, Gutz spent one winter riding at Golden Gate Fields (and tore it up there) before VISA problems sent him back north.
I remember when Jason Lumpkins tore it up also in Northern California. I remember when John Snow brought
a string of horses from Canada to Northern California and his stable rider, David Wilson, tore it up also. They left
after the string of horses were claimed by Hollendorfer and Morey. Seems like Baze and Alvarado are the only
constants there anymore.
It must make you think you actually know him personally.
