(Mutasaabeq wins the Bourbon Stakes with Luis Saez aboard / Coady Photography)

Over the weekend, things really started to cool off in the Commonwealth. Temps dropped. Frost was on the horizon. Chills meet bone.

Will someone please tell rider Luis Saez.

The man has never been hotter.

The man’s horses have never run better.

After a torrid weekend, Luis Saez has bolted to the front and the top of the Jockey Standings at the current Keeneland October Race Meeting. When Sunday’s races were in the books, Saez had tallied 9 wins, 3 seconds and 3 thirds in the first 22 races of the meet.

That amounts to a win percentage of a whopping .41%, and his horses have hit the board on .68% of the time.

If that is not impressive enough?

Just consider:

He had 5 wins in the 10 Graded Stakes during the Fall Stars Weekend.

He had wins in the G1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes on Friday and the Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity on Saturday.

He had 4 races on Sunday — including the last three.

Wow.

Cool move over.

Hot man in town.

The closes riders in pursuit are Joel Rosario, and Tyler Gaffalione, who both have 4 wins each. Rosario has a 4-3-0 mark in 22 mounts, while Gaffalione has a 4-1-5 record in 20 rides so far.
