day in and day out as I have been. He's just horrible! It's as simple as that. There was a reason that Joel Rosario kept
kicking his arse out here meeting after meeting. Dominguez, Velasquez, Rosario, Castellano, Gomez and others are
more talented and have better game plans in place to win races than Bejarano. It appears Bejarano doesn't have any kind
of trip planned ahead of time and hesitates too often during the race for my taste.
Hollywood Mike we have always agreed on jocks. This time I have to disagree with you. Bejarano is a top 5 rider in the country no doubt about it. When trainers talk about Bejarano they say his strength is that he always has a plan set out for every race.
When you say Rosario kick his butt all the the time-not so quick. I remember 4 meetings where Rosario won the jocks title that Bejarano would have won for the following reasons. I don't remember the exact meets
1) Bejarano was winning he meet and got hurt, also put him behind in the next meet
2) Bejarano was winning the meet and was suspended for like 5-7 days.
3) Bejarano lost close meets but rode out of town quite a but more than Rosario did in meets.
Bejarano is the best rider out west bar none. He always rides his horses out like no other rider does in So Cal. I believe there is a reason why the late great Frankel hand picked him to come out to So Cal to ride.
I would like to see Bejarano go east like Rosario and compete against the best.Especially now that Baffert has kicked him to the curb for no reason like he has every other rider
