Has Joe Talamo ever ridden at Saratoga ??? Equibase goes back to 2017 for jockey stats at the Spa..not sure where else to look. Looks like he might have a chance on MG and I was wondering how he has fared at the Spa in the past

Find it hard to believe Mucho Gusto will get 10 furlongs.

Mucho Gusto may not win Saturday (I wonít be using). But it certainly wonít be due to Joe Talamo. He is a first rate jock who has ridden in many big races. I think he can handle Saratoga.

There's no change. Talamo has been riding Mucho Gusto from the start. And even if he hadn't, Mike Smith wasn't available having committed to Dallas Stewart well before Baffert made the decision to send Mucho Gusto Monday.

I'll reiterate again that the Baffert uses Talamo on horses where physical strength are of paramount importance.

I like Talamo and he is having a solid meet at Delmar. Hes a good rider. Hard to ever count out Baffert horses in big races but seems like a last minute audible to run here. Looking at this race someone is going to take them a long way out front. I think Code of Honor is horse to beat.

All during the Triple Crown season, Baffert makes audible calls and sends horses out of town (Oaklawn, Sunland) based on how they're doing at the moment.

My lack of confidence is not so much in Joe's skills but his familiarity with the track. My opinion is these jocks, and NYRA has a slew of top notch riders, build a rhythm with the track. Most of the riders in the Travers have been going at it 5 days a week for over a month at the Spa. Joe has one ride at Toga in the last four years and how many races against this NYRA colony? I'm not knocking skills but track experience, and most likely I will look elsewhere but I like Mucho Gusto. Its internal at this point....

That was a war, and Code of Honor a very deserving winner. It’s honestly going to be sickening if Maximum Security ducks his way to an Eclipse Award in a division of hard-trying, likable colts like we saw in the Travers.
