This has been known for awhile. Bailey now made his decision. Who knows? next ride- Kentucky Derby? Only if he gets a good mount, his agent told someone.

It's always good to see one of the greats walk away from the game...being able to walk.

exactly, when your riding the best horses you always look like the best!!  Give any top 25 rider his mounts and he will look like the best also.

I couldn't find it quickly, but where does Bailey stand in all-time wins? Forget the money--he should have made a lot with today's purses.

One of the articles said 5,890, not sure where that puts him on the list - total wins might not be the best measure of a career either - as that has to do with cometition and longevity more so than talent.

Bailey won his only mount of the day in Gulfstream's 9th race on Istan. Jan 20th, he has his only mount on another Mott horse. I am putting $100 dollars on the horse to win. Titled is the horse tomorrow.

some people just dont get it do they? theres a reason jerry bailey got to ride the top horses and usually got his pick of the mounts, hes the best and he EARNED IT! these trainers and owners just didnt sit around one night and say lets draw names out of a hat or throw darts and came up with jerry baileys name that way. this guy worked harder than anybody to get where he got, he studied the form and tapes of races day after day year after year. probaly wont get the eclipse for this past year but he outrode johnny v and every1 else on the big circuit, just take a look at the win%(26%). there was a great front page of the drf several years back and it read"wanna win? call jerry bailey" im very sad to see him go but like somebody else said in this thread im very glad to see him going out on his own terms!


who takes over as the best on this continent now? well its a tossup and you came name a few and garret definately threw his hat into the ring in the latter part of last year and id love to see it be him but the guy who im really looking to see step up and become the top rider here within the next few years is ramon dominguez
