Del Mar: Jock switch on Ventana


Patrick Valenzuela has been named to ride Ventana in Wednesday's Green Flash Handicap, replacing Martin Garcia. Ventana is the 5-2 favorite on the morning-line of the five-furlong turf race.

Garcia worked Haskell Stakes winner Coil at Saratoga on Wednesday and has had difficulty returning to California, track officials said.
