Medal Count has had a couple mixed reviews, but CBS Pittsburgh
has given a run-down on the horse's odds, its trainer, and its jockey: Medal Count is among the likely longshots worth considering. His trainer Dale Romans has done well with colts who, like Metal Count, have done their best running prior to the Derby on turf or synthetic surfaces. In last year’s Kentucky Derby, his jockey Robby Albarado guided longshot Golden Soul to a second place finish. He did so with a perfect rail running ride — a tactic that has earned his fellow Cajun jockey Calvin Borel three Kentucky Derby wins. Albardo learned something in that race and it could pay dividends to those bettors who back Medal Count. Jockey Robby Albarado has won almost 4,200 races in his career.
