The Pressbox Show Interview with Jockey Adam Beschizza

Gene McLean had the opportunity to talk with Jockey Adam Beschizza. Adam came over from England to ride at the Fair Grounds this winter. He has a shot to win the Fair Grounds’ riding title as the meet comes to a close on March 31. He will come to Kentucky next to ride at Keeneland & Churchill Downs. He rode Snapper Sinclair to finish second in the Risen Star Stakes!

We had a pretty good trip. We were outside, way out, but we saved ground (coming down) on the rail all the way. When we came to the three-eighths (pole), I thought we had a big chance to win the race. (When we) came to the straight, she was fine, fighting pretty good. Then when I saw the winner (Blue Prize) come out, I thought we had it. But I was in a great spot and she tried to really give me everything she had.”
