History, the best tool for predicting the future, shows that jockeys who are in a tight struggle for premiership honours at the end of the racing season ride a lot of winners.
Well there is a titanic struggle taking place for the Number 1 position in the race for leading Melbourne jockey for the season 2011/2012 between Luke Nolen and Craig Newitt. Both jockeys are locked on 65 winners apiece, and with only six metropolitan meetings remaining, expect both jockeys to ride several winners in the coming weeks.
Luke Nolen has an outstanding book of rides at Caulfield tomorrow including Genuine Spin, Epingle, Serene Star, Le Societe, Harmonic and Prince of Capers.
Craig Newitt also has a couple of winning chances which includes Proper Madam, Show Up and Dash For Wiz.
May the best man win; I have a feeling Luke has this one in the bag!
