Low Five Irad Ortiz for his assist to Jose Ortiz in the H. Allen Jerkens. Jose was on the lead with heavily favored American Tattoo. Paco Lopez was looming behind with Shazier. Irad was out of gas on Carom. Irad pinned in Paco just enough to let Jose slip away and get home. We get “assists” and “teamwork” but that was just a wee bit too obvious for us. Stewards would be negligent not to talk with Irad about that.
