Umberto Rispoli on form

XB Net ambassador Umberto Rispoli continues a dual rich vein of form - both in the saddle and with his selections in the jockey's exclusive blog for XB Net.

Umberto Rispoli's preview of the Withers Stakes selected two of the first three home - Capo Kane and Risk Taking (albeit in the wrong order). Not riding himself at Aqueduct, but instead at his home track, Santa Anita, the italian jockey scored an impressive victory in the G3 Thunder Road Stakes, storming home on Hit The Road for Dan Blackler.

Rispoli enjoyed a 36% win rate at Santa Anita in January, the best winning percentage of any jockey across the country, and his form last weekend suggests he's going to be equally hard to beat in February.
