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!

Ebben has been doing well,” Margolis said. “He worked :59 and 1 (on Saturday Dec. 30). We’ll work him a half-mile next weekend and get Corey (Lanerie) to ride him. He loved the way he worked so all is good. We got a little break after the allowance (at Churchill Downs on Nov.25) and it’s been about six or seven weeks so it’s perfect timing for him. We’re ready to go.”

Trainer Steve Margolis, is expected to enter Ebbed in the G3, $200,000 Lecomte Stakes — a qualifying race for the Kentucky Derby — at the Fair Grounds on Jan. 13
