WHO LEADS LATEST TOP MIDLANTIC JOCKEY, TRAINER RANKS?

Jockeys. Photo by Vas.

The top three trainers remain the same in the latest Top Midlantic Trainer rankings, while Edwin Gonzalez and Joe Bravo changed positions atop the jockey standings.

Nine of the top 10 jockeys were in the top 10 last week, while among trainers, eight of last week’s top 10 remained in the top tier.

The ranks are compiled by comparing the performance of each trainer or jockey in three metrics – win percentage, earnings per start, and $2 wagering return on investment – to the average of the jockeys or trainers at that track.

The formula also includes a component designed to reduce scores for trainers and jockeys who have raced significantly less frequently than average in the region in order to give more credence to larger sample sizes.

The average ranking score for all trainers is 2.437 points; for jockeys, it’s 2.589. In all, 274 trainers qualified for inclusion, as did 145 jockeys.

The rankings incorporate every rider and trainer at each track at which he or she had made at least 11 starts.

The list includes racing action from May 15 through September 6. It includes racing from Laurel Park, Delaware Park, Monmouth Park, Parx Racing, Penn National, and Charles Town. Colonial Downs data is incorporated for jockeys only.

Edwin Gonzalez and Joe Bravo swapped positions atop the jockey standings. Gonzalez, with 4.870 points, has a narrow lead over Bravo (4.793).

Gonzalez won with four of his 12 mounts during the week, including a hat trick on September 2 at his home track, Penn National.

The Monmouth-based Bravo, meanwhile, won with three of 16 starters. One of those three wins, aboard Analyze It, came in the Grade 3 Red Bank. It was Bravo’s seventh stake win of the Monmouth Park meet.

Arnaldo Bocachica holds steady in third with 4.632 points. He won with seven of 15 starters during the week, posting hat tricks on both Friday and Saturday.

The biggest move among the top 10 was that of Jeremy Laprida, who jumped from eighth a week ago to fourth this week with 4.286 points. Laprida won four times during the week, including two victories August 31 at Parx Racing.

The Charles Town-based Christian Hiraldo (4.192 points) rounds out the top five.

The only newcomer to the top 10 was Paco Lopez, who checks in at 10th with 3.860 points. He was 11th last week, and this week, he and Trevor McCarthy have swapped spots, McCarthy falling one notch to 11th with 3.832 points. McCarthy, seeing his first sustained action in a month, won with two of 10 mounts during the week. Lopez did not have any qualifying mounts; he was at Churchill Downs all week, where his Derby mount, Ny Traffic, finished eighth.

  • The autumn of King Leatherbury
    Hall of Fame trainer King Leatherbury, fifth on the all-time wins list, is down to one owner and four horses — but no complaints.

The top three in the trainer ranks remain unchanged, with Ben Perkins, Jr. (5.492 points), Kevin Patterson (5.141), and John McKee (4.735) occupying those spots.

One of two newcomers to the top 10 is in fourth. New York-based Chad Brown sent out seven starters at Monmouth Park during the week, winning with three of them. He’s 10-for-27 overall at the Shore track and has 4.668 points. Brown’s horses have been in the money in 20 of 27 starts there (74%).

Jorge Duarte, Jr., sixth a week ago, moves up one notch to round out the top five with 4.573 points. Duarte also was three-for-seven during the week, his wins coming at Laurel, Delaware, and Monmouth.

The other newcomer in the top 10 is Mark Reid, who is 10th with 4.142 points. Reid won twice from five starters during the week.

Leaving the top 10 were Michael Stidham and Jerry Robb. The former falls to 15th with 4.019 points, and the latter is now 17th (3.967).
