You got to play by the rules the refs are allowing for, if they allow for more aggressive play then you have to craft your trade accordingly. Its been very successful for him, and its not like you get charged with a crime if anyone gets hurt or killed so its just business, nothing personal to the riders he might take out I am sure.

If the stewards changed the way they were dealing with this his riding would change.

If this isn't stopped, one of these days Irad Ortiz is going to herd a would-be contender away from passing his horse.
Preparation. Discipline. Patience. Decisiveness.

Imo, refreshing to see a racing jurisdiction where the stewards won't put up with that nonsense (herding.)


Cordero was an absolute MASTER at herding/carrying. He was so smooth at it, the Stews hardly ever noticed....Or, willfully ignored it. I can't believe back then there was a star system that allowed it....But damn, Angel could make holes that weren't there
