Joel Rosario Will Be Back Aboard Tom’s D’Etat In Next Saturday’s Whitney

With the jockey colony at Saratoga under COVID-19 restrictions, regular rider Joel Rosario will get back aboard Tom’s d’Etat in next Saturday’s Grade 1 Whitney Stakes, reports the Daily Racing Form.

In his most recent start, the 7-year-old son of Smart Strike was guided to victory by Miguel Mena in the G2 Stephen Foster at Churchill Downs. Trainer Al Stall has breezed the horse just twice since the June 27 effort, including on Friday at Saratoga.

Rosario rode Tom’s d’Etat in that breeze, receiving an official time of 48.22 seconds for a half-mile. Tom’s d’Etat has won all five of his starts with Rosario in the saddle.

“He’s just a special horse,” Rosario told drf.com. “He’s nice to ride; he knows his stuff. He’s special because he’s very smart, he knows what he’s doing out there. He’s there for you when you ask him. If you leave him alone, he just takes his time. He felt good.”
