Past the Wire throws a big High Five to Jose Ortiz but this time it is not for his ability in the irons, but his class and compassion out of the saddle. After winning races on Sandy’z Slew Jose made Sandy a big winner retiring him to his farm outside Ocala. High Five 🖐 Jose. Well done. Jose will have to share a High Five with Johnny Velazquez who flew to Santa Anita to break the graded stakes wins in North America not once but twice, picking up 661 and 662 on Bask and Eight Rings for Bob Baffert. We’ll throw Bob a High Five too for the graded stakes double. One last High Five today goes to the Rainbow 6 winner at Gulfstream who took down a nice score, 2.2 mil, and Ed de Rosa of Twin Spires who confirmed the ticket was purchased through them and is sharing structure and style. Nice one guys and gals!
