Hi I was out at hawthorne today and they announced that tanner riggs
will be riding at 124 lbs   WOW !!!
SO his weight is 124lbs so means his mounts will be over weight pretty often like I noticed he has a mount fri where its 119 his mount but now it will be 123 . seems to me this could make a diffrence in some races
I really like tanner very good rider.

Its hard to make weight when you are 6 feet tall

I am often amazed by how tall he is for a jock

It's more weight, yes, but it's live weight, as opposed to saddle inserts used to bring "too light" riders up to the correct weight.

I'll take the benefits from live, working weight over the slight penalty of a higher impost every day of the week. I want a healthy and strong rider, not someone who ate half a peanut three days ago then flipped it.
