Over the years Ju-Lep as I like to call him has been a big source of frustration for me as when I bet him he seems to always find a way to get trapped behind horses. Or like my buddy likes to say, Ju-Lep will find a way to get blocked in a two horse race, lol.
But in all fairness Ju-Lep must be given credit where credit is due. He is a very good grass rider which most Euro's are & if you back him when he's not on the obvious favorite in grass races usually there will be positive rewards forth-coming. This means back him in grass races when his mounts are hovering above $3-1.
Now I'm not sure how his grass riding form will transfer to So. Cal's speed favoring grass racing, however I do think that he can adapt after a couple of weeks, especially in those races with true competitive early pace battles.
The key as always will be to not go overboard on the horses he will be riding for his Father'nLaw Mitchell & back him when he's riding those $3-1 or higher grass runners.
