Saratoga Weekend Recap: Jockeys - 07/22/13

After the first weekend of racing at Saratoga, Johnny Velazquez is the leading rider with 5 wins in 25 starts. It has been a pretty fast start for Velazquez who also has 3 place and 3 show finishes. He is finishing Top 3 at a 44% clip thus far. Johnny scored his first Stakes win of the meet aboard NY-Bred Hessonite in the $100K On The Bus Stakes on Friday. Velazquez followed that up with two more Stakes wins on Saturday including the G-3 Shuvee aboard Authenticity. His total earnings for the weekend was more than $434,000. 

Rosie Napravnik and Javier Castellano have three wins apiece from 23 mounts. With many expecting a big Saratoga meet from Joel Rosario after the year he has had so far, it has been a decent start for him. He has finished in the Top 3 with 12 of 27 mounts, but just two winners, good for $324,722 in earnings. 

One of the more impressive moves of the weekend was made by Shaun Bridgmohan in yesterday's G-2 Sanford. He squeezed Wired Bryan between horses through the lane to score the upset win.
