According to Javier Castellano's agent Mike Lakow, Castellano will ride Audible in the Ky. Derby and Johnny Velazquez will ride Vino Rosso. That leaves Bolt d'Oro open. Also leaves Noble Indy open.


Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
Not only do jockey agents try for the elusive Derby but they also have long time barn commitments to consider.

Ruis will find somebody for Bolt but he's already burned bridges with Gary Stevens and Corey Nakatani in his brief training career, guessing Victor Espinoza is up next?

I thought it terribly interesting in pre-race interviews when Ruis said he told Javier "you better not be more than a length and a half off Justify" and then came Javier's interview in the saddling area, when asked where he thought he'd be, "up close, not too far away from the leader, but then I'll have decisions to make as the race develops". One does have to wonder a bit, if the pace was slow as the clock suggested, why wasn't Bolt right up on the lead?

I'm probably reading too much into the whole thing, but I know there are trainers who just say "I'll leave it up to the jock when the gates open" and I'm beginning to think Ruis just might be giving too many instructions to these HOF guys.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

More jockey injuries: :(
Oaklawn Injuries: Quinonez Suffers Vertebral Fracture, Loveberry A ‘Cracked Forearm’
Luis Quinonez, Oaklawn's leading rider in 2007, will see a specialist Monday to determine the extent of a back injury suffered before Saturday's second race, his agent, Monty Penney, said Sunday morning.
Penney said Quinonez sustained a “compression fracture” of his “T4” vertebra when Siblyline reared in the gate and unseated the jockey.
Quinonez was able to move his extremities, but he was transported by ambulance to CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs for treatment before being released later Saturday, operations director Jason Milligan said.
Quinonez, 51, is among the winningest riders in Oaklawn history with 582, including nine this year.
Penney also represents Jareth Loveberry, who was injured during training hours Sunday morning when his mount stumbled and fell leaving the starting gate. Loveberry was transported by ambulance to CHI St. Vincent after sustaining an injury to his left arm, Milligan said.
Penney said Loveberry was being fitted with a cast after suffering a “cracked forearm.”

thanks for that info Stark - I was hoping victor would ride him - its the best thing that could have happened to Bolt for the KY Derby - love the horse - tries hard every time - will be rooting hard for him to win those roses.

Allen Celebrates 2,000th Victory Friday At Tampa Bay Downs

Mike Allen, who has been on both ends of enough photo finishes to know the score, had a quick quip for Samy Camacho after their mounts crossed the wire together in the first race at Tampa Bay Downs.

Robbie Davis will ride a race Wednesday; hopes it's first step toward a comeback
Robbie Davis, who hasn’t ridden in a pari-mutuel horse race in nearly five years, will make his return to competitive riding Wednesday at Aqueduct. He will ride Dublin Green, a horse he owns and trains, in the fourth race, a maiden special race going six furlongs on the turf.

Davis 56, won 3,382 Thoroughbred races in a career that began in 1981. He left regular race riding in 2002 due to chronic knee pain. He rode one race in 2011 and five in 2013 in two aborted comeback attempts.

In 2010, Davis underwent knee replacement surgery. Davis said Saturday he feels “better than I have in the last 15, 20 years. Davis said he has his weight down to 124 pounds. If he’s a pound or two over come Wednesday, he hopes the connections understand.

“Hopefully,” Davis said with a laugh. “I’m good friends with them.”

Davis, who trains five horses of his own including Dublin Green, said he hopes Wednesday is the first step toward a return to regular race riding.

Has anyone here heard anything about something happening to TVG's Kurt Hoover?
I tuned into TVG a little while ago and caught the tail end of a conversation between the guys on The Quarters, and it sounded like they were wishing him well, hang in there kind of stuff. :?
I don't know if they were referring to injury or illness or what...but what I heard worried me.
