Who is the best wet weather Sydney jockey ?

With the likely prospect of a wet track this Saturday in Sydney for the Golden Slipper dash I thought I would use EPI to  give me the answer.

I have now included “Track Condition” as a slicer  in my Jockey-Trainer analysis page. The steps I  used were :

  • Select Metrop in the “Grade” slicer
  • Select Randwick and Rosehill in the “Venues” slicer
  • Select Slow and Heavy  in the “Track Condition” slicer
  • Sort the resulting jockey list by the “Runs” column in descending order. This means that the jockeys with most rides are on top of list.

Now look down the list for jockeys that have a green shade in both Strike rate and A2E columns and voila !
The best mixture of Strike rate and A2E is not unsurprisingly TOMMY BERRY  !
And anyone who saw his ride on Frolic last start to beat She Will Reign would agree … it was a genius ride !

I have also matched the top 4 jockeys with their GS rides so you can see where the value bets are. It would make for a nice First4 divy 🙂
