Turn out the lights. The party is over.

So is the drama.

Barring something unforeseen, the Turfway Park’s Winter/Spring Meet Rider’s Title is ready for our early prediction. We know the polls are still open. But we are ready to declare a winner.

Albin Jimenez, who has suddenly become the “Pat Day” and “Corey Lanerie” of Northern Kentucky, is sprinting away to another championship.

After the first couple of weeks, Jimenez — who captured the rider’s title for the recently concluded Holiday Meet — has piled up 11 wins in the first 45 mounts this meet. That gives him a win percentage of .24% and his overall record of 11-5-5 gives him an “In The Money” percentage of a whopping .47%.

The closes rider in terms of wins is Sonny Leon, who has 6 wins in 43 rides so far. Another win farther back and alone in third is Gerado Corrales — who has a 5-5-2 record in just 20 rides. His win percentage is .25% and his horses have run 1st-2nd-3rd on .60% of the time.
