Last week was a good week for rider Shaun Bridgmohan. It was a good week to be Shaun Bridgmohan. And, it was a good week to own a horse ridden by Shaun Bridgmohan.

In the first seven days of 2018, the 1998 Eclipse Award winner for “Outstanding Apprentice Jockey” has ridden 23 different horses. He has won with 8 of those, with four seconds and 1 third. And, he has amassed a total of $155,250 in purses. That averages out to $6,750 per start.

Not a bad week.

And, as a result, Shaun Bridgmohan has trampolined all the way to the top of the current Jockey Standings at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans.

Going into this Thursday’s card, Bridgmohan has now had 31 winners, 12 seconds and 12 thirds in 107 mounts. His horses have earned a whopping $855,357 since the beginning of the current meet, which began back in November of 2017. And, his winning percentage has jumped to .29%.

Just one win behind, in second spot, is Miguel Mean, who has 30 wins, 23 seconds and 22 thirds in nearly 60 more rides. Mitchell Murrill, another hot jock riding in New Orleans, is third with 24 wins.

Perhaps the hottest rider in the colony, though, is Joe Bravo. In only 64 mounts, “Jersey Joe” — who has made most of his name and game along the Jersey shore and at racetracks like Monmouth and The Meadowlands — has put together an impressive record of 19-8-9 in those 64 rides. His win percentage is sitting at .30%, and his horses have been “In The Money” on .56% of the time.
