Joel Rosario Keeps It Going At Saratoga Race Course
Joel Rosario, who rode Orb to victory in the Kentucky Derby, keeps on winning races at historic Saratoga Race Course.It is getting to the point where if Rosario doesn’t win multiple races, something is wrong. Rosario won three races on July 24 and finished 2nd twice. On Thursday, July 25, Rosario won just one race, the 8th race, a stakes race, with horse Central Banker. Rosario also had two second place finishes.
Rosario, Dominican-born, is as talented a jockey as they come and is going to win hundreds upon hundreds of races if he can stay healthy. Orb is currently training in Maryland and Rosario will ride the Derby-winning horse in the Travers if all goes according to plan and the animal can stay healthy. If there is one sure thing this year, the 150th year of racing in Saratoga, it’s that Joel Rosario is starting to make some history of his own.
