When you have a Hall of Fame jockey riding at the meet, you come to expect big things.

So far, so good. So many good things.

The Hall of Famer is riding like one.

After the first two days of the Churchill Downs’ Spring/Summer Meet, John Velazquez has ridden nine horses.

He has managed three wins and two seconds.

His win percentage is .33%. Nice.

His horses have hit the board .56% of the time. Nicer.

And, he currently leads the Jockey Standings.

Just what you expect of a Hall of Famer, right?

Absolutely right.
