Arlington: Jockey challenge, naming challenged


Arlington's jockey challenge, dubbed Young Guns vs. Cagey Veterans, five minutes to post. Retired riders Earlie Fires, Mark Guidry, Patty Cooksey, Zoe Cadman, and Otto Thorwarth are out on horseback, riding in a turf starter allowance against the top 5 riders in the current Arlington standings. There's also a head-to-head bet pitting the "Young Guns" against the "Cagey Vets." The real question is how much weight to give current form vs. retired jockey. I went with decent form and actually practicing race rider in Serengeti Tour and Junior Alvarado.

But am I wrong? Young Guns vs. Cagey Veterans does not exactly trip off the tongue?
