Jeremy Rose

With his home track of Delaware Park closed until the end of April, Jeremy Rose has been riding almost exclusively at Laurel Park in Maryland. Through the first eighteen days of this month, Rose has 15 wins in 54 starts (win 28%), and an in the money percentage of 56% for $331,300. These may not seem to be blockbuster numbers, but what shocked me was that he leads second place jockey Rosie Napravnik in wins, win%, in the money %, and earnings. Last years golden girl and Eclipse Award (Apprentice Jockey) Finalist, Rosie Napravnik has eight more mounts than Rose, and in my opinion "better" mounts. Is Rose that good, or is Napravnik going into the sophomore slump?

I think he's learned some lessons about where your ego does and does not belong; owners I know who stopped using him for a while have resumed -- so either he's good enough to back it up, or he's learned to keep his attitude in check.

I think this guy is the next great jockey. He went to Gulf last year and did pretty well. He should take a stab at NYRA in the next year or 2.
