I am impressed with an up and comer who outfinished Joel Rosario today in one of the races today at gulfstream. His name is Joe Rocco Jr. I've been keeping an eye on him since the Fall of 2012 at Keeneland and have been so impressed with him and his talent. I see him as a patient rider who times horses so perfectly. I actually think he reminds me a bit of Jerry Bailey IMO. He use to be a former leading rider at Delaware Park and I think you find talent at those tracks. Guys like Edgar Prado, Ramon Dominguez, David Cohen, and Rosie Napravnik find success and go on to do better things. It feels like Delaware Park is the place to find talent. I sure hope this rider goes on to a better circuit after Gulfstream. He will be on my riders to look at aside from the top riders like Rosario, Castellano, John Velazquez and Jose Lezcano.

 It looked liked the horse would have fought back with anyone but that santa anita female apprentice aboard.

I've been following Rocco since Keeneland Fall and I've got nothing but positive things to say about him!! I see a good future in him and I hope he goes to a tough circuit in the future. It's rare that Rosario gets outfinished these days since he's such a strong finisher.
