Week Four, Let’s Make $ome More!

With sixteen days of racing in the books, the Daily Racing Blog decided to take a look at the jockey standings.  After a slow start the Ortiz brothers are back in form.  Here’s a look at the top five, as of the end of racing on Monday:  Irad Ortiz Jr. his rides are in the money 53%, winning 22%.  Jose Ortiz, in the money 52%, winning 11%.  JJ Castellano, in the money 48%, winning 18%.  John Velazquez, in the money 47%, winning 15%. And, Joel Rosario, 46% in the money, 17% winners.  There is plenty of racing left in the meet, so the jockey  title is still very wide open.  Ten races on Wednesday, let’s have a look.

1st:  #5 ML 10-1.  #6 ML 6-1.  #1 ML 9-5.  #4 ML 7-5.

2nd:  #10 ML 8-1.  #4 ML 4-1.  #6 ML 6-1.  #2 ML 7-2.

3rd:  #7 ML 8-1.  #5 ML 15-1.  #3 ML 5-1.  #2 ML 3-1.

4th:  #5 ML 15-1.  #3 ML 9-2.  #8 ML 3-1.  #2 ML 5-2.

5th:  #6 ML 8-1.  #7 ML 12-1.  #3 ML 15-1.  #2 ML 8-1.

6th: #6 ML 10-1.  #2 ML 5-1.  #4 ML 7-2.  #5 ML 5-2.

7th: #2 ML 6-1.  #9 ML 7-2.  #6 ML 12-1.  #5 ML 2-1.

8th:  #5 ML 7-2.  #4 ML 20-1.  #2 ML 8-5.  #1 ML 6-5.

9th:  #5 ML 8-1.  #3 ML 20-1.  #1 ML 3-1.  #6 ML 8-1.

10th:  #9 ML 15-1.  #12 ML 9-2.  #4 ML 10-1.  #8 ML 3-1.

The feature event for Wednesday is the 9th race.  It is the ninth running of The Quick Call.  It is a 5.5 furlong race, on the turf, with a purse of $100,000 dollars.  Let’s hope the conditions are dry, and they stay on the grass for all the turf races.  It’s a good thing DRB is not wagering on the weather at The Spa, lest we’d be outside the gate selling pencils out of a tin cup.  Good luck, and good value.
