It was a beautiful morning at Golden Gate Fields, with sunlight coming through scattered clouds in mostly blue skies. What a nice change after a week of triple-digit days in Southern California. I had a chance to chat with jockey Alex Bisono while watching the morning workouts outside the track kitchen, near the clubhouse turn. I miss seeing him at Santa Anita; Alex says he misses Southern California but is doing well up here, and definitely doesn't miss the hot weather!
Tomorrow (Sunday, Oct. 5) he has five live mounts at Golden Gate: Toy Toy Toy in the 1st, Dixie Banker in the 2nd, Mix in the 3rd, Be So Special in the 5th, and Empress Court in the 6th. Unfortunately, I'll be back at Santa Anita for Cal Cup; but best of luck, Alex!
