Hollywood: Gomez off mounts


Jockey Garrett Gomez has taken off his final three mounts on Friday's program after complaining of shoulder and arm discomfort, according to track stewards.

Gomez's place on Tap It In in the upcoming sixth race will be taken by jockey Patrick Valenzuela. Replacements have not been named for the seventh and eighth races.

Gomez injured his shoulder in a spill at Churchill Downs in early November, and took more than two weeks off after the Breeders' Cup to recuperate and undergo therapy.
