Matz shouldn't be so hard on Leparoux. Matz is a good trainer, Leparoux is a good jockey. It is easy to get shuffled back in the KY Derby, Rags doesn't have that burst of speed coming out of the gate, he is not a good horse when having to navigate traffic. He has a big shot in the Belmont. Not sure how he will handle the 1 1/2, although he will be rested. He did tire in the BC Juv. at 1 1/16. Sure he was wide, but thats racing, and Leparoux wasnt the jockey that day. Should be an exciting Preakness, and a loaded Belmont.
