The Pressbox Show Interview With Jockey Chris Landeros

Gene McLean talked with Jockey Chris Landeros. Landeros will ride Gotta Go in the Blue Grass Stakes this Saturday. For more on Gotta Go check out the profile over at equibase.com.

I haven’t been getting on him in the morning (since he rode him to victory in his first start on June 29 at Los Alamitos). But they told me he was ready. Oh, yeah. I just threw a couple of crosses at him today; that’s all. Cadillac. I wanted to see if he’d change leads on his own, but in the end I just gave it a little weight shift (to the inside) and he made a perfect change.  He’s got the mind of a 4- or 5-year-old. Professional.”
