Oh, that's so very sad. Hard to imagine one going so quickly.

‘A Cop And A Cowboy’: Assistant Trainer Reflects On Luck, Love Of Horses, And Career

For six weeks every summer, Saratoga horsemen live to the rhythm of workouts, races, dinners, meetings, and the beat of Caroline Street. The return to Belmont is always a change of pace. The summer is over, and the barn is a little quieter. When Gary Contessa moves his stable back to Long Island this year though, there will be another reason the shedrow, the paddock, and the office are a little stiller: Contessa's assistant of the past eight years and friend for four decades, John Diaz, will be retiring to Florida at the end of the Saratoga meet.

I see that Flavien Prat is riding 4 for Baffert on Saturday, including St. Patrick's Day. I wonder if Martin Garcia's ride on Nero put him back in the doghouse?
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

IIRC, Garcia was involved in a bad spill when the filly, Vitality, broke down and rolled on top of him. He has said that his safety vest saved his life, but maybe he's really bruised from that and has taken off some mounts?

Pretty sure he's riding the 2 Anchor Baby for Baffert in the upcoming 4th race at Del Mar, 7/2odds and 14 minutes away.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
