Jockey Joe Talamo Works Mine That Bird

Jockey Joe Talamo was aboard as Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird worked five furlongs this morning on the all-weather track at Santa Anita. He was clocked in 101.8. Trainer Chip Woolley and owner Mark Allen were both out for the work this morning. Mine That Bird is prepping for the Grade 1 Goodwood Stakes at Oak Tree on October 10.

Talamo was a guest on the Tonight Show last night with Conan O'Brien, and he presented Conan with a jockey helmet!

Yes. That Joe Talamo is everywhere these days.

Tomorrow evening he'll be having dinner at The Ellis'.

Hopefully we'll have HD coverage of that also. ;-)

The pace is really picking up at Santa Anita these mornings... with Breeders Cup coming up and all the great prep races for it, there will plenty of big horses around for you to video for us.
I guess Joe was filling in for Calvin Borrell, who will ride That Bird.
