Julien Leparoux came back to Kentucky from Saratoga after Labor Day. It had been a summer at the Spa, with more trips to the hot springs box than trips to the post with a hot horse. Most of those mounts were reserved for the Ortiz brothers, Johnny Velasquez, JJ Castellano and a host of others that circulate on the New York circuit.

But something must have clicked up North for Leparoux.  He has returned to Kentucky with a hand as hot as any rider in the country.

After the first three days of this year’s Keeneland Fall Meet, Leparoux has managed to garner 22 mounts. He has returned with 7 winners, 2 seconds and a third and has earned over $713,000 in purses for his owners. That’s a win percentage of .32, and his mounts have been In The Money .45% of the time.

The second leading rider, by number of wins, is Robby Albarado, who has amassed 4 wins and 2 thirds in 18 rides. That amounts to a win percentage of .22 and his mounts have been in the money on .33% of the time. Overall, his first 18 mounts have earned over $428,000 in purses.
