Tyler Gaffalione: 7/23/22 Toga

Has some nice mounts today (9 total) at Saratoga to improve upon his rough start of a 33(1-1-5) record thus far.

Feels like an important day for him this meet.

he was riding a lot of turf for the Kentucky trainers and the turf horses aren't good enough to beat the New York guys. he should do well with the dirt horses though. good kid, and real good rider!

He was horrible today and has been horrible this meet. I know it’s a deep colony but he was asleep at the wheel at the break in races 9 and 10. Not to mention losing the jump on an Assmussen horse to a Cancel/Kentarmaci horse in race 8. I know that this board doesn’t seem to want to criticize people, but he should spend the rest of his summer back in Kentucky at Ellis Park if he has more days like today.

These jockey types probably make more money here not winning than winning somewhere else...

Also , maybe they enjoy the time spent there...

Another Jockey who should have left well enough alone and stayed where he was successful...Gulfstream. Chantel Sutherland made the same bad decision leaving Canada years ago. I think the smartest jockey ever to not make that change was Russel Baze.

It's eight days into the meet and apparently his career is over. Tough crowd.

He has done extremely well at Saratoga in the past. He is riding exactly where he belongs, and any suggestion otherwise is made out of sheer ignorance.

Russell Baze was based in southern California from 1988 to 1991.

He went from being a 25% rider to a 12% rider.

I donít know what Baze you are talking about but itís certainly not Russel the muscle Baze who was a winning machine. 12% ? Lol go do some research. Dude won over 12k races....he may have not made the big money but he was ultra consistent. 12% ? Lmfao

The post was discussing Baze's time in Southern California from 1989-1991 inclusive. His win percentage when on the "big dog" circuit was indeed 12%.
