Since this is about Mike riding Z12, when and if Z12 makes it to the track Mike would be 49/50, the only top jockey I remember strutting his stuff at that age was Willie Shoemaker, I'm not saying Mike couldn't do it, but is there any reason he needs to ride that long?
Mike's resume' fills pages on Equibase. Probably one of the most approachable and charitable jockeys racing. Cannot recall another jockey out there who has made his love of all horses, not just those horses he's aboard, his priority and well known in his interviews. Note his interests on his FB page: Horse Racing and Keeping Fit. I hope he has many years- he says 4 or 5 - if he stays fit. Then I'd love to see him fill a chair on TVG or HRTV. No one smiles like he does.
Anyone know why Bob Baffert took Chantal off Game on Dude apparently for good? Just nosy of me, I know!
