Around the Track

Over the past few race days there have been a couple of spills during the races resulting in some jockey injuries. Shaun Bridgmohan suffered a collarbone injury and Friday, Declan Carroll went down during the running of a race. These jockeys literally put their lives on the line every time they step into those stirrups after a “riders up” call. Next time you get to watch a race in person take notice of their effort and courage as they all are outstanding athletes and deserve our appreciation.

Best Bet

Our Best Bet will be in Race 7: Corot. Going to try a long shot today as this one should catch a track that favors his early speed. Good luck and may they all come home safely.
