The riders were cited for failure to maintain courses with their mounts. Nakatani was benched for his ride aboard Victory Sign in last Wednesday’s fourth race, Ochoa for his ride on Fantasmin in Wednesday’s seventh race, while Antongeorgi was ticketed for his ride aboard Trail Mix in last Sunday’s second race. On New Year’s Day of this year, Mitchell once again left for the Sunshine State to check on his horses, but will now limit his excursions east. “I’m not going to spend as much time in Florida this year,” he said. “They didn’t give me a lot of stalls in Florida, only six, so if I claim some, I’ll kind of be looking for more.” ARCADIA – At age 57, trainer Mike Mitchell doesn’t seem to mind logging frequent flyer miles. Last winter, the Bakersfield native often could be seen boarding a jet at L.A. International Airport bound for Hallendale, Fla. He has stables racing on two fronts, Santa Anita and Gulfstream Park. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
