On Sunday, we hit for three winners out of the eight races carded down in the “Big Easy,” at the Fair Grounds. And, for the meet, that pushed our win percentage to over 38.25%. In 251 races that we have handicapped for this meet, as well, our top pick has been “In The Money” 68.92% of the time. Not bad numbers.
But we are looking for bigger. And, of course, better.
Check us out later this week when we kick up a little more dust (and, of course, sod) at the Fair Grounds down in the Bayou.

Graham, Beschizza Locked in a “Head Bob” for Tops in Jockey Standings at the Fair Grounds:
It has been a battle all meet, and it continues to be a “head bob” for the top spot in the Jockey Standings at the Fair Grounds this meet. After Sunday’s races were all and done, James Graham had his nose down at the wire and was one win in front of his buddy from the United Kingdom.
And, the numbers are truly scary close.
When Sunday’s races were all in the books and it was time to bourbon up on Bourbon Street, Graham had 34 wins in 205 mounts so far this meet. Beschizza, on the other hand, had 33 wins in 204 rides.
Now, that is what we would like to say is a horse race.
Seven wins off the pace is Mitchell Murrill with 27 trips to the winner’s circle, while Colby Hernandez has 26, Shaun Bridgmohan has 25 and Corey Lanerie has 24. All have a shot to rally between now and the end of the meet in March to make a serious run at the two pacesetters.
Here’s a closer look at the Top 25 riders so far this meet:
