Not with Mike "churchill-choker" Smith aboard...

Anyone else notice the unflattering hand-ride he used; any reason for not using a whip, in a stakes race nonetheless?!?

Take nothing away from Shackleford, but it WAS head-to-head till the near end...Credit to Castanon who looks over and see's that MS ain't goin to the whip.  Uses what he has, and surprise...wins!

not Smith's best ride for sure. He should have not taken the lead so fast.

Not a fan of I concede the outside to no man Smith but looked like he gave Zombie a decent ride. Just don't think this is Zombies best distance but the horse is a beast and ran a nice race.

Watchmaker :
I don't want to take anything away from Shackleford, who overcame getting shuffled back a bit on the rail nearing the far turn, but I wonder, what was the hurry with Amazombie? At this high level of competition, seven furlongs is stretching it a bit with Amazombie. So I don't understand why Amazombie was sent to the lead early on the far turn. With distance being an issue, wouldn't a more patient a ride been better for Amazombie, and wouldn't that have kept Shackleford boxed in a bit longer?

Mike Smith does not box horses in. Look he is one of the nicest Jockies ever but he will never compare to somebody like Pincay. Pincay would bump you over the rail if you came inside and the Jockies knew that.
