His last name was short on the racing form "BAEZ". You noticed it quickly and looked at the horse. One of our astronauts once said "Once you've landed at your destination (his being the Moon)it's such a down everything else. Jockeys face this so often. A fabulous horse, a winner, the podium and fame-then the next year-a losing horse a slow walk back to the jockey room. Not to mention holding onto an 2-ton animal with the inside of your ankles for two minutes that seems like an hour.But they love it, it is their life and sometimes their death. Jockey Baez didn't die while riding his horse but who are we to judge what fears he faced. We can only remember now the great rides we watched. Condolences to the Baez family and admiration for the jockeys of today, yesterday, and tomorrow. As a racing fan-"you give us a thrill on the rail we can never forget!" Thank You.

Good Luck to Filare L'Oro this afternoon. I wish they were running her 5 or 6 furlongs though, she clearly needed more distance in her Pimlico start. She should do better if she gets a clean break.

I like the Larry Jones trained filly, TOLA, in here too. Bluegrass Cat was my early derby fav in 2006, until I saw Barbaro. Can you keep a close watch out for Margano, the 2008 Barbaro brother and let us know when he makes his first start for Barkley Tagg. He has been with Tagg for almost two months and I would expect to see him making a start soon. In fact, I would love ANY information on this guy. He is very different from the other Barbaro brothers in coloring. He looks like Dynaformer in spades. I think he might be the one to finish what his big bro started.
