On this Past The Wire TV show we welcome Florent Geroux for a One on One talk with Jonathan Stettin in The Rogue’s Gallery. Flo joins us fresh off his 8th and counting Breeders’ Cup win aboard Idiomatic. The win put the Brad Cox filly right square in the middle of The Horse of the Year discussion under a crafty and hard fought ride by Flo.
Florent Geroux has out together quite a resume in the saddle with 8 Breeders’ Cup wins, a Kentucky Derby albeit not exactly the way he wants his next one, and riding some of the best horses in recent times. He was the regular rider of Gun Runner a world class racehorse, a war horse if you will and a throw back to the great horses of the past. Was one of Gun Runner’s best races a race he didn’t actually win?
Flo talks about some of his past races and horses but also about one of the most exciting two-year old prospects to hit the track this year. How good does Flo think Nash is and when and how did he know it? You’ll have to watch and listen to find out but we are confident it will be worth it. Florent Geroux is not only a great rider but a great guy to talk with, especially horses. Flo even gives us a bit of an education of the new crops and how they actually are in a race.
Bottom line, great guy, great rider, great show. Nobody Does it Better!
