Oh how cute, they match. Silver Swallow before her 4th place in the Bayakoa Handicap (II) with Mike Smith (Photo by Jeanine Williams)
Yea Santana is a pretty gutsy rider with lots of talent, and a go-to for Ron Moquett. Definitely one to watch along with my good buddy, Alex Canchari. His first career win was the Oaklawn opener this year, and he's currently leading the standings at Hawthorne. I can't wait, this is gonna be a great meet.

I’ll have to tune in more on him then! It’s exciting to see a new rider crawling fast up the ranks without necessarily needing a top horse to get him there. Wilmer Garcia in New York has been impressive lately as well for a lesser-known jockey… he’s been very good getting huge longshots up front to win or almost win.
