Dave...very valid point...I think jockey impact in some cases plays an important role..but there are a lot of circumstances to look at...type of race and money involved, relationship between jock and the connections...but I like to see an older experienced jock like Garret Gomez, Johnny V., Gary Stevens, Mike Smith, be on a horse that they have ridden before and knows the horses behavioral habits...I told some of my racing friends last week that Mike and Gary would be the top jocks in this years BC races..and they were...also without Dettori being here Ryan Moore won 2 BC races...he also is experienced....don't believe that jocks should be a major hcp factor but when you look at your contenders it's nice to have these guys riding for you ...it makes me more confident when I bet...
