Sutherland Booted Off Game On Dude

Rafael Bejarano will replace Chantal Sutherland as the rider for multiple grade I winner Game On Dude, trainer Bob Baffert told The Blood-Horse Sept. 11.

Although Sutherland has ridden the 5-year-old son of Awesome Again   in most of his major stakes victories, such as the Santa Anita Handicap, Hollywood Gold Cup, and Goodwood Stakes (all gr. I), Baffert felt the time was right to make the change and decided to switch to Bejarano, who has ridden the majority of Baffert's top horses this year.

Bejarano has ridden Game On Dude on one occasion, winning a Santa Anita Park allowance event on Jan. 27, 2011. Sutherland then picked up the mount to win the Santa Anita Handicap March 5 that year, but did not become the regular jockey until two starts later, after he was ridden to a runner-up finish in the Charles Town Classic (gr. III) by David Flores and finished third in the Lone Star Park Handicap (gr. III) under Martin Garcia.
