I don't hate on any riders as I respect their profession immensely. I just think that Martin and Edwin are riding better than
any other riders in So. Cal. Remember I attend everyday and don't lounge on a couch all day TVGHRTVFAN.
I still think no way would I put them on my list of riders to go to.
I think the Gulfstream riders (i.e. Joel Rosario, John Velazquez, Javier Castellano) along with Ramon Dominguez and Rosie Napravnik can ride around in circles with them.
Ernie, Weren't you the one a while back that said Chantal was a better rider than Rosie?
That was until I saw Rosie up close this year in NY. I hadn't seen her enough at the time. Her ride on Shanghai Bobby was a masterpiece in that BC Juvenile. She really showed she could ride around in circles with Chantal Sutherland and the other mediocre so.cal riders. Lets forget that I said Chantal is better than Rosie cause truly Rosie is better. I was wrong. Forget the fact that I said Chantal is better than Joe Talamo too
She whipped Shanghai Bobby about 40 times in the stretch and won by a diminishing head. That falls in the category of 'win at all costs', not necessarily 'a truly great ride'.
Shoe could do that with his hands and make the horse want to run.
??? One of them haters? I don't hate or love any jockey. They are just a (small) part of the handicapping equation. You chose the Shanghai Bobby race to show how great she was, I merely pointed out that perhaps that wasn't her best ride. She did win the race, however. That counts for bettors. Can she hold the horse together for a mile and a quarter? We will see.
