Don't worry, Baroque, he still has another 20 or 30 years to go. He doesn't age. He matures, like a French wine.

Mitchell apparently told the Santa Anita publicity department Garcia "hit his head pretty hard, so they’re keeping him overnight. But he was talking and in good spirits. He’s going to be OK.”

So, there's that.

Not sure how widely this has been shared here, but I heard an interview with Baffert today who mentioned that he's battling a case of the stable-sicks.
Talked about sanitizing everything from bits to water bowls, making sure nobody is sharing etc. etc.
Didn't sound debilitating as of now, but something to consider just FYI.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Makes you realize just how easily a TB can be thrown off course by Nature's tiniest denizens, when big outfits like Ballydoyle and Baffert can have their barns hit by 'sicks.' I am fairly sure that those guys run a tight, clean ship all the time.

Bob Baffert says the reason Mother Mother was scratched from the Chandelier is an illness. Has a cough.

If true, I can think of a few things that might be in play here:
I know SoCal is expensive, but I'm under the impression that NY is worse. :shock:
Our traffic sucks but, after reading some of the posts from TBC members who live in the area, maybe NY's sucks more? :?
There may be more racing along the Eastern seaboard, but the jockey colonies are also well-populated with strong riders. Joel is having to compete for good mounts against award-winning jocks like Castellano, Velasquez and the Brothers Ortiz. If he returns to California, he will be a slightly larger frog in our small pond. 8-)
Weather. I could see where he may be getting tired of riding in the cold, rain and mud. ;)

Or he’s not getting the mounts he was a year or two ago in NY. Also someone may have apprised him of basic geometry and he has ascertained that going 6-wide around the turns at SA, DMR and Los Al is better than going 6-wide around Big Sandy. Wonder if he would be retaining his current representation or if Goof might get back in the game.
