Jockey Mario Gutierrez rides I'll Have Another, and Sabas Rivera rides Lava Man. (April 7, 2012) Lava Man required his own pony the entire post parade because it was the first time he had worked in a post parade (second time he's ponied in the afternoon) and was extremely anxious, thinking he was racing again. He was anxious the entire day, just like the first time he ponied IHA. Unless Lava Man gets a ton more schooling in the afternoon, he will NOT do well at the Kentucky Derby (Gr. 1), and I really hope they DON'T send him. Photo © 2012 Marcie Heacox, all rights reserved.
