Joel Rosario Greatest Jockey

Joel Rosario
Three of the Greatest rides in modern times--all 3 by Joel Rosario. Furious, powerful, stretch drives
that send chills up your spine when you see this pure perfection and mastery in riding. Fast, powerful, and uncanny instinct to
get into sync with the horse to perform as one syncitial unit of power, speed, and momentum. No other rider
could have possibly won on those horses.

Three recent Grade I and Grade II races, The Gamely, Californian, and The Hollywood Oaks at Hollywood Park won by Joel Rosario. These races were masterful rides where Joel Rosario had to make split-second decisions to overcome unforeseen race scenarios (one during the Gamely where the pace came up unbelievably slow and he put the closer, Dubawi Heights, near the lead, another where he was forced to take up and steady and come from behind with Twirling Candy in the Californian, and also where he took "the hole shot" along the rail to beat heavily favored Plum Pretty). These incredible rides are just three other examples--amoung many in the past couple of years--why Joel Rosario is the greatest jockey in the world today.
