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!

He’s going to improve from the gate,” Lewis said of the son Tale of Ekati, who has had excuses in each of his four starts, twice victimized by slow getaways and twice by being squeezed at the break.

He’s just developing,” Lewis added. “He’s been gelded and he’ll have blinkers on him now, so I think he’ll be better in the gate. Nobody knows what the two turns are going to bring, although he acts like a two-turn horse, but sometimes they fool you.

From Craig Lewis, trainer of Here Is Happy, who will run in the Grade 3 Sham Stakes at Santa Anita on Saturday. This is first step toward the Santa Anita Derby.
