With five victories through three racing days, Joel Rosario is riding regularly at Santa Anita, on top of the standings and likely to remain there for the duration.

The 33-year-old native of the Dominican Republic took a rare moment of inactivity at Clockers' Corner Sunday morning to schmooze with old acquaintances.

“It feels like I'm back home, and I am back home,” said Rosario, who enjoyed much success in the Golden State before joining super-agent Ron Anderson in August of 2012 and making the East Coast his base of operations.

“It's nice to be here with everybody I know from before,” Rosario said. “Ron is a very nice guy and a great agent, so I'm happy to be working with him.”
