The Kentucky Derby may be delayed, but that doesn't stop the qualification races and a big winner was determined this week. Tiz the Law, trained by Barclay Tagg, scorched the Gulfstream park 9 furlongs in 1:50, healthy for the upper echelon of the Triple Crown events. But was jockey Manny Franco that rode the colt to victory. The 25 year old Puerto Rico native has yet to surge onto the national stage, but may be poised to do so, even with the Kentucky Derby delayed to Labor Day weekend. Will Tiz the Law be the horse to beat this summer? We shall see. But Franco is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!!
Who am I?
