Jockeys that deserve more mounts, or less mounts?

There's some jockey's I wouldn't mind seeing on more mounts. Don't even know if he's still riding but Hiram G. Rivera was one. John Bisono at Parx usually knows what to do when he gets a good mount. Corey Lanerie (even though he's a top Jock) kind of goes under the radar IMO.
On the other hand, jokers like Casey Kaufman, Jesse Lantz, Arguello should be cleaning the stables. Joe Johnson and Pat Johnston ( if he's still riding) should be retired.

Disagree. He's underrated. He rides the horses he has fine, he's improved as far as my eye can see.

Brice

Brice is horrible . Can not get a speed horse to relax early. Favorite angle is Blanc to Talamo on a speed horse knocking on the door. I guess he's ok with a late closer or "one run" type of horse but not with a front runner.

Tiago Pereira can ride, he should have a mount in every race.

That's not Fabio Arguello, Jr is it, Nosed? I thought he was done a long time ago...

One of the Johnsons, Joe I think, had a mount for Gary Hartledge (surprise!) I wanna say at Keeneland this April?

How's Gryder doing out on the coast, guys? I know he was picking up some mounts for Sheriffs (winner on Protocol a few starts back) but he seems out of the loop anymore.

Gryder is fantastic, the guy rides very smart races whenever he gets a real shot, he should get more mounts, not sure why he doesn't.

Watch his rides on Do Some Magic at SA in Jan, Feb and March.

Yep, that's him... pretty sure he's still riding in Kentucky circuit.

Juan Hernandez at Golden gate is a jockey I would like to see try the SoCal circuit again...had a decent Del Mar meet a few years back but then couldn't get many live mounts at SA before heading back north....patient rider who can really rate a horse up front and was fairly decent on turf....other than on cheap speed, Edwin Maldonado is the SoCal jockey I have little time for...master of moving to quickly...

Julien Laperoux sucks. He blows more races than all the other jockeys combined. Yes, I can't stand him.

Excuse me while I puke my guts out, this joker cost me the Pk6 on a $12 ticket blowing the last at Los Al on Sat, terrible, terrible ride looking back waiting on competition in a 4 horse race, instead of pushing a cheap horse to an open lead, I realize everyone makes mistakes just too soon to see that name as a guy that deserves more mounts lol

Junior Alvarado seems like he could handle even better mounts. http://form.horseracing.betfair.com/...yId=2.00125057


I don't know enough about Florent Geroux, but he seems like he understands turf race dynamics and can sit a good trip. I don't know whether or not he can be aggressive when the situation calls for it. http://form.horseracing.betfair.com/...yId=2.00119101

I used to like Luis Villanueva a lot, but he just has never gotten any mounts (and when he does, they're 30-1 shots for small barns). It's been a long enough time, and I also haven't noticed as many of the sporadic move-up rides that he had been producing, that I have kind of lost interest in him as a prospect at this point. http://form.horseracing.betfair.com/...yId=2.00147118

He moved back to Puerto Rico last year. No idea if he is riding there or not.
