Welcome back, Ron. :D


$60 shipper from his B-I-L, might be his highest priced winner the rest of 2018, congrats!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Exercise rider Valenzuela severely injured in spill
ARCADIA, Calif. – Exercise rider Adrian Valenzuela sustained a spinal-cord injury in a spill at Santa Anita on Saturday and did not have feeling in his legs on Sunday morning, according to his father, trainer Martin Valenzuela.

Adrian Valenzuela, 21, was scheduled to undergo surgery on Monday at Huntington Memorial hospital in Pasadena, his father said.

Martin Valenzuela said Adrian suffered a “fractured back.” Doctors have told Martin Valenzuela that his son could be paralyzed from the waist down.

“They have to get some inflammation out of his back,” he said. “Hopefully, the feeling will come back to his legs, but they said it’s a small chance.”

The injury occurred when Adrian Valenzuela worked a horse for trainer Bobby Wayne Grayson. One of the bandages on the horse’s front legs became unraveled, causing the horse to stumble and fall, Martin Valenzuela said. Martin Valenzuela works closely with Grayson.

“The bandage came off,” Martin Valenzuela said. “I don’t know if it ripped.”

Adrian Valenzuela has worked primarily as an exercise rider in recent years. He rode briefly at the Los Alamitos night meeting in 2016, winning one race from eight mounts.

“He got a little heavy,” Martin Valenzuela said.

Another rider badly injured. I wish the bad news would stop. :(
Does the PDJF help exercise riders like Adrian, or does it have to limit its assistance to those who are injured in races, or at least have an active jockey license?

That's awful. I hope Valenzuela is able to regain some feeling in his legs.

I'm moving back to New York. Sunday will be my last day riding in California. I thank everyone for the opportunities. Hoping for a great weekend to end my venture here and excited about returning home.

Javier Castellano sure does give good interviews before or after a race.

Go ahead, folks. Donate. You know you want to. :D

(And yes, I did.)
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

On Steve Haskin's FB page

According to Javier Castellano's agent Mike Lakow, Castellano will ride Audible in the Ky. Derby and Johnny Velazquez will ride Vino Rosso. That leaves Bolt d'Oro open. Also leaves Noble Indy open.
