Large Cast Expected for El Camino Real Derby

Julien Leparoux, a two-time champion jockey in the United States, and Alan Garcia, who won the 2008 Belmont Stakes (gr. I), will both be at Golden Gate Fields Feb. 18 to compete in the $200,000 El Camino Real Derby (gr. III).
 
The Frenchman Leparoux, one of only four jockeys to win Eclipse Awards as champion apprentice (2006) and champion journeyman (2009), will ride Daddy Nose Best for trainer Steve Asmussen in the El Camino Real Derby. Leparoux, 28, is currently based at Gulfstream Park in Florida,
 
Garcia, who guided Da’ Tara to a $79 shocker in the final leg of the Triple Crown, will pilot Irish-bred Lucky Chappy for Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Graham Motion. Garcia, 26, from Peru, was a champion apprentice in his homeland (2003) and is currently based at Aqueduct in New York.
 
Both jockeys will be making their first trips to Northern California.

@TerryDickens, Lady of Fifty does have a decent shot if she can set a moderate tempo. If the first 6 furlongs are covered in less than 1:11, she'll have to prove to be one tough filly to wire that field
russian greek will not win bet the philly
years ago I saw the leading rider in the US fly in to ride in the california Derby at GGF. The colt barely hung on after opening 4 lengths at the top of the stretch. The rider made liittle difference
I like Russian Greek in this one. If he can pull out the win, the earnings paired with the winner's purse from the Cal Derby give him as good a shot as any to be at the post May 5th.
